Abstract:

Tests were conducted to evaluate and compare the performances of various anchors driven into a lean clay subgrade. The performances of the anchors were compared with the performance of the guy anchor, which is a standard item furnished in T17 membrane surfacing sets. Tests were also conducted to determine the holding strengths of anchors used to secure neoprene-coated nylon membrane placed on soil subgrades to waterproof and dustproof airfields, helicopter pads, and roadways. A review of two previously published reports concerning the evaluation of anchors was made to determine if it would be feasible to use any of the anchors tested to secure membrane surfacings. Author
