Experimental Study on the Injected Anchors Behaviour on Historical Masonry
The proposed paper reports the results of a research on the behaviour of injected anchors in historical masonry. The purpose of this investigation was to develop a methodology to be used as a preliminary design stage for structural interventions in order to pre-qualify the real strength of this kind of anchors. Several preliminary tests in laboratory with test specimens made of concrete and masonry and a first series of in situ tests on different types of masonry were conducted to analyse the behaviour of the anchorage and of the mortar. As this test is not included in National Standard, the studied standardised methodology could be adopted as a Guideline.
