The results of an analytical and experimental investigation into the failure mechanisms caused by short anchor bolts, embedded in a brittle matrix and loaded monotonically in tension, are presented and discussed. Several engineering applications are included which describe the limitations of currently available design procedures. A mathematical model, based on linear elastic fracture mechanics, is used to predict crack paths, determine the stability of the crack growth, and obtain the tensile capacity of the anchor bolts.
