A report on the interim anchor test on the Vercors test bed is now available to download.
The three anchor test bed was installed on 13th August 2008, see; http://speleo-vercors.org/Scialet%20Combeau%20MASTER.pdf For a number of logistical reasons, it has not been possible to adhere to the test regime specified at the time of installation and 2014 was the first opportunity to transport the Hydrajaws tester to the test location.
The Bolt Products anchors manufactured from 316 stainless steel installed at Yordas Gully in October 2013 were tested to destruction. Five anchors were installed and removed.
More tests were carried out on anchors at Ingleton Quarry on 14th September 2013. The tests were carried out on the Bolt Products anchors produced in 304 stainless steel and involved an angled load test at 0, 60 and 45 degrees.
Four eco resin 'p' anchors were placed in the Yordas stream bed in March 1998. The test extraction took place in July 2013. You can download the results from the Technical Group downloads area or the link below.
