Keywords: anchorage (structural); bond (concrete to reinforcement); corrosion resistance; post-tensioning; prestressed concrete; prestressing steels; stress corrosion
The paper reports on new prestressing tendons, which have been designed to achieve reliable bond, to guarantee corrosion protection, and to eliminate elastic and plastic slippage in anchors and couplings. Information about comparative tests on stress corrosion will be given.
