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.
