As the tendons are not embedded inside the cured concrete section, the monitoring, repair, and maintenance of external post-tensioning systems are not as complex as those for inter- nal post-tensioning systems. Components of Post-Tensioning System A post-tensioning system comprises of several components such as the tendons, ducts, grout, and the anchorage system. This is accomplished by the grout bonding the tendon to the inner wall of the duct, while the duct itself is bonded to the surrounding concrete. Overview of Bridge Stay Cable Systems The cable-stayed bridge consists of a bridge deck supported by a system of inclined cables, or stays, passing over or attached to towers located at the main abutments or piers. The fact that PTI plant certification has been, and will continue to be available to nonmembers of PTI further supports your assertion that the purpose of the PTI certification program and PTI's proposal is not to restrain competition, but to promote safety and the quality of unbonded post-tensioned systems. The tendons are stressed and the ducts grouted.
The strands in turn are formed from seven individual wires, where six wires are helically wound around a center wire. In addition, the cost to replace tendons can exceed several hundred thousand dollars per tendon. In HiAm-type anchor- ages, a steel socket filled with zinc dust, steel balls, and epoxy is used to anchor the MTEs. The goal of PTI is to encourage the use of post-tensioning rather than competing systems or materials.
Although Freyssinet pioneered prestressed concrete, C. Before authorizing the commencement of reinforcing steel activities, the controlling contractor shall ensure that the reinforcing steel contractor on the project is provided with the following written notifications. The grout caps are typically made of noncorrosive materials such as fiber-reinforced plastic, stainless steel, or galvanized ferrous metals. Some of the MTE systems are shown in Figure This letter expresses the Department's current enforcement intention.

The following discussion pro- vides more Recommendations foracceptance and application of post-tensioning systems. book on bridge post-tensioning systems. There are several systems for cable-stayed bridge cables that have been used in the past and continue to be used today.
The strands are passed through the pipe and stressed to design loads. The process is done by lubricating the strand with a corrosion-inhibiting grease, wax, or epoxy, and extruding a high-density polyethylene over the strand. However, because of the absence of concrete cover protection and the possible presence of unwanted air voids, external tendons can be more vulnerable to corrosion than internal tendons within the same bridge segment.
Post-tensioning can be an economical alternative for long-span bridge structures, as well as reduce construction time. Similar to the greased-and-sheathed strands, the teeth of the wedges can pen- etrate the coating when gripping the strand leading to potential corrosion problems in the anchorage regions, if not properly accounted for Shinichi In a typical arrangement, the towers and deck are subjected to compressive stresses, whereas the stay cables are under tensile stresses.
Two types of stress- ing technologies are commonly used: pre-tensioning, where the stress is applied before the placement of concrete; and post- tensioning, where the stress is applied after the concrete cures.
PT segmental bridge under construction DSI Figure shows a basic bearing plate anchorage system. Figure illustrates the num- ber of cable-stayed bridges built in the United States from to The tendons in a post-tensioning system are installed after the concrete had sufficiently cured to a prescribed initial compressive strength.
Learning More about PT PT design and construction is fairly specialized, but there are many sources of information. The Figure The HDPE sheathing is lifted into place segmentally and either fusion welded or coupled together in order to form a continuous stay.
Ken Bondy is an engineer who has been designing PT structures for over 40 years; he wrote an excellent history of the industry PDF in Concrete Construction in December While the button-head tendon system typically was used for bridges until the late s, most modern con- struction uses a tendon system where seven-wire strands are seated with anchor wedges within the anchor head.
