Historical Version s – view previous versions of standard. Alternatively, provisions may be made to distribute the load from the anchor to the stone with a soft bearing material.
The designer specifying the test shall state what de? Precision and Bias A superscript epsilon e indicates an editorial change since the last revision or reapproval. Stone suppliers shall provide the following information: The strength of a limited length of anchor may be related to a longer length of support when the?
Link to Active This link will always route to the current Active version of the standard. If it is desired to measure fracture strength of stone when it exceeds the strength of the metal anchor, an additional set of tests shall 4 More specimens may be needed depending on the variability of the test results.
The test load is applied gradually using a calibrated test machine; load is increased until the stone or the mechanical anchor fails.
A precision section will be added when sufficient data are available to indicate acceptable tolerances in repeatability and reproducibility.
The sample of stone is supported at the opposite end by a 25 mm 1 in. Observe and record the failure of the load applied to each specimen. Summary v1354 Test Method 4.
It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Load is applied, separately, perpendicular to the surface of the panel and parallel to the surface of the panel.
The American Society for Testing and Materials takes no position respecting the validity of any patent rights asserted in connection with any item mentioned in this standard. In addition, the support frame shall be sufficiently stiff to limit de? Test specimens immediately upon removing from the bath, wiping the specimen free of surface water.
ASTM C – 96 Standard Test Method for Strength of Individual Stone Anchorages in Dimension Stone
Users of this standard are expressly advised that determination of the validity of any such patent rights, and the risk of infringement of such rights, are entirely their own responsibility.
Stone samples shall be taken from slabs oriented relative to rift as will be used in construction. The sample of stone panel is held down while the upward load is applied through a single sample of anchor. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. The mechanical anchor is connected to a test support.

Support Frame and Loading Device 7. Individual reprints single or multiple copies of this standard may be obtained by contacting ASTM at the above address or at phonefaxor service astm. Current edition approved Oct. This test is intended to represent the interaction of the anchor with the stone panel.
The area beneath the anchor shall be 2 kept unsupported to prevent restraint of spalls that may arti? Refer to Guide C The values stated in c13354 system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be c13554 independently of the other.
Refer to Guide C A number in parentheses indicates the year of last reapproval. The surface c1534 the loading plate and the stone panel sample shall be lubricated.
The stone sample may be held down by independent asstm as shown in Fig. The anchor asfm be attached to the support frame atm the same way it will be attached to the backup structure in construction.
Referenced Documents purchase separately The documents listed below are referenced within the subject standard but are not provided as part of the standard.
Actual dimensions of each sample tested rather than nominal dimensions shall be measured and reported, 4 Your comments will receive careful consideration at a meeting of the responsible technical committee, which you may attend.
Your comments are invited either for revision of this standard or for additional standards and should be addressed to ASTM Headquarters. This test is intended to represent the interaction of the anchor with the stone panel. If restraint devices have interfered with the fracture plane, note it and adjust the locations of the restraint devices.
The strength of a limited length of anchor may be related to a longer length of support when the flexibility of the support is properly considered by the designer. The test as described above is repeated?
