AS 5216:2018 (Design of post-installed and cast-in fastenings in concrete) is an Australian Standard published by Standards Australia that specifies the minimum requirements for the selection, design and evaluation of cast-in anchor channel and post-installed fasteners and supersedes SA TS 101:2015. The technical information remains the same, except for some editorial changes and corrections.

The National Construction Code (NCC) was revised on May 1st, 2019, to incorporate AS 5216:2018 as a referenced document in Building Code of Australia (BCA) Volumes 1 & 2. Refer to Vol. 1 clause B1.4 (b) (iii) and Vol. 2 clause 3.0.4 (e) for more information.
AS 5216:2018 superseded SA TS 101:2015 as the official document to follow when meeting the deemed-to-satisfy standards.

To be eligible for seismic loading applications, a fastener must pass particular testing and assessment requirements. Fasteners used in seismic applications require a more stringent prequalification regime than those used in cracked concrete under static or quasi-static forces. EOTA TR 049 “post-installed fasteners in concrete under seismic action” (formerly ETAG 001 Annex E “Evaluation of anchors under seismic action”) specifies the European testing and assessment process.

AS 5216 does not currently include design provisions for anchors subjected to seismic loading; nevertheless, they are accessible in EOTA Technical Report 045. (2013). In the United States, design standards are given in ACI 318 for fasteners that meet the seismic prequalification requirements of ACI 355 for post-installed fasteners or AC 232 for cast-in anchor channel.

These two phrases are frequently used interchangeably to refer to the same thing: a mechanism that connects an element to concrete. A fastener put in concrete may be referred to as an ‘anchor’ in Australian practice, such as a ‘mechanical anchor’ or a ‘chemical anchor.’

Flooded holes are those that have been filled with water. The pressure of the water is not taken into account in flooded holes, hence underwater conditions/submerged holes cannot be categorised as flooded holes. The cleaning sequence for flooded holes is flush-brush-flush, as opposed to blow-brush-blow for dry holes.
