The main objective of this research project is to better understand the failure strength and the modes of failure of different types of mechanical anchor systems in stone masonry.

A secondary objective is to discover whether various non-destructive methods for evaluation of physical properties applied to the stone specimens helps to predict the tension and shear strength of the mechanical anchors.

This project was made possible through Grant MT-2210-06-NC-06 from the National Center for Preservation Technology and Training (NCPTT).
