English term or phrase: presses back against the shank
Je ne saisis pas très bien cette phrase.

As this occurs, the concrete directly urrounding the fastener is compressed and in turn presses back against the shank of the fastener.

exerce une contre-pression sur le corps (de l'attache)
Explanation:
Explication : l'attache, lorsqu'elle s'enfonce dans le béton, déplace un certain volume de béton, qui se trouve ainsi comprimé autour de l'attache. En retour, le béton exerce une pression (contre-pression) sur le corps de cette attache. C'est en tout cas ce que je comprends.
