Title: Evaluation of Bond Properties in
Self-Consolidating Prestressed Beams
Author(s): E. Salcedo Rueda and A.J. Schokker
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 117-122
Keywords: bond; prestressed; self-consolidating concrete (SCC)
Abstract:The use of Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is becoming more prevalent in both building and bridge applications. Newcrete Products in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania has experience with use of an SCC mix in parking structure members such as double-tee sections. While SCC is not yet widely used in bridge members in Pennsylvania, this application is also of interest. Newcrete in cooperation with Penn State University developed a program for bond evaluation of the Newcrete SCC mix. The objectives of the program are as follows: 1) to compare the Newcrete SCC mix with the current design code requirement for transfer length, 2) to determine the pull-out capacity of the strand in the SCC mix with the Moustafa test, 3) evaluate the failure mode at ultimate, and 4) compare the results of the SCC mix with a standard (non-SCC) Newcrete mix.
