    Maybe I lost track of the thread, but I think we were mostly talking about the SandTrap and WaterTrap, where there definitely could be an integration effect (ie, the total sum of force x time counts in addition to the maximum force). However, almost ALWAYS, the maximum force generated is the most important parameter towards failure.

    Most of our anchor systems have very little integration effect. At times this has also been called "progressive failure", vs. "peak load failure".
