the safe stressing of prestressed concrete

specializing in the production of large, medium and small concrete mixers, concrete mixing stations, stabilized soil mixing stations and other equipment. It is a heavy industry enterprise integrating R & production and sales.

THE SAFE STRESSING OF PRESTRESSED CONCRETE PRODUCTS

Stressing of prestressed concrete is acknowledged to be a potentially high-risk activity, as it involves the use of industrial prestressing equipment that uses hydraulic rams to stretch high- yield wires and strands with forces that can be in excess of 1500 tonnes.

These structures have low cost and are safe from cracks. Prestressed concrete can be used with advantage in all structures where stress develops, such as the tie and tie rods of a bow rope beam, railway sleepers, electric poles, the face upstream of the gravity dam, etc. The prestressed concrete beams the deviation is usually low.

Sep 23, 2010  Prestressed concrete is the most durable, reliable and strongest concrete that is widely used for the construction of mega buildings and bridges. It is a type of concrete in which high-strength tendons placed in tension regions of the cross-section are stressed during the construction of the element to act against tensile stresses generated due ...

Prestressed Concrete: Types, Advantages Disadvantages

High-grade concrete is used in prestressed concrete because reinforcement imposes large pressure forces for members causing high stresses at the ends to be developed by anchoring equipment. The stress generated at the end of the beam can only be resisted by high strength concrete.

The prestressed concrete is adequately cured and load application is delayed in order to reduce the shrinkage issues. This will hence increase the durability of prestressed concrete. 3. Creep Value for Prestressed Concrete The prestressed concrete must be properly cured and the load application must be delayed to reduce the creep.

The usual range of concrete cylinder strengths used in prestressed concrete is 25–50 N/mm2, with values at the lower end of the range used for slabs, and those at the upper end for beams. Details of the design of mixes to achieve these strengths are given by the Department of the Environment (1975).

Such stresses are designed to counter-act stresses induced by external loads. Concrete is strong and ductile in compression, it is weak and brittle in tension, and hence its response to external loads is improved by pre-compression.
