Title: On Grouting Mortar Fabrication and Properties, Grouting Procedures, and Grouting Mortar Interaction with Prestressing Cables
Author(s): L. Muhe
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 1257-1264
Keywords: concrete construction; grout; grouting; nuclear reactor containment; post-tensioning; pressure grouting; pressure vessels; prestressed concrete; prestressing steels
Abstract:The interaction of pressure grout and the wires in post-tensioning tendons is investigated both during and after pressure grouting. Basic tests on a minimum spacing between the wires in one bundle, sutdies on the procedure of grout flow in the longitudinal direction and finally a model test for the grout flow in the cross direction of a prestressed duct are reported.
