Title (EN) DIRECT TENSION INDICATOR FOR EMBEDDED ANCHOR MEMBERS
(FR) INDICATEUR DIRECT DE TRACTION DESTINE A DES ELEMENTS D"ANCRAGE ENCASTRES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A device used to indicate whether a predetermined compressive load has been applied to the device. The device is formed to receive an anchor member upon which a tensioning force is to be applied in conjunction with loading the device. The device itself has an upper press (3) that has an aperture formed to receive the anchor member (8) and also has means for manipulating a washer (4). The device also has a lower die (2) with an aperture formed to receive the anchor member. The lower die is formed so as to be able to work in conjunction with the upper press when the upper press and lower die are aligned and moved towards each other. The lower die also has means for manipulating the washer. The means for manipulating the washer are also formed to cooperate with the means for manipulating the washer on the upper press. The device also has a washer that lies between the upper press and the lower die. The washer is formed so that when the washer is acted upon by the means for manipulating the washer of the upper press and the lower die it will indicate visually whether a selected compression load has been applied to the washer.
(FR)La présente invention concerne un dispositif destiné à indiquer si une contrainte de compression prédéterminée a été appliquée au dispositif. Ce dispositif est conçu afin de recevoir un élément d"ancrage sur lequel une force de traction s"applique en corrélation avec une mise sous contrainte du dispositif. Le dispositif lui-même comprend une presse supérieure (3) doté d"une ouverture conçue afin de recevoir l"élément d"ancrage (8) ainsi que de moyens de manipulation d"une rondelle (4). Le dispositif comprend aussi une filière inférieure (2) dotée d"une ouverture destinée à recevoir l"élément d"ancrage. La filière inférieure est conçue afin de pouvoir travailler en conjonction avec la presse supérieure lorsqu"elles sont alignées et déplacées l"une vers l"autre. La filière inférieure comporte aussi des moyens de manipulation de la rondelle. Ces moyens sont aussi formés afin de coopérer avec les moyens de manipulation de la rondelle de la presse supérieure. Le dispositif comprend aussi une rondelle placée entre la presse supérieure et la filière inférieure. Cette rondelle permet, lorsqu"elle est sollicitée par les moyens de manipulation de la presse supérieure et de la filière inférieure, d"indiquer visuellement si une contrainte de compression choisie lui a été appliquée.
