In an effort to make the webbing anchor research more accessible, Tom wrote a review article that combines the results from all the anchor research he could find. The review is confined to 1 inch tubular nylon webbing anchors connected to a single point (so excluding multipoint anchors). The paper also includes some new webbing anchor testing data. A synopsis spreadsheet was created to make viewing the results from all the studies easier. The tables are constructed in both kN and Lbs for those who think in either unit system. Lastly, the synopsis table will be updated on the Webbing Anchors archive page in the future and will not be updated here because this is the archive of the 2015 ITRS paper.
