TG5.3 - Manual for prestressing materials and systems

TG5.3 - Manual for prestressing materials and systems

 
  • Since Eugène Freyssinet’s first of use high-strength steel wire for prestressing concrete in the late 1920s, there have been many changes in prestressing systems used around the world. Current systems bear little resemblance to many of the older methods used in the past. Designers and contractors need information regarding these historical practices and materials to evaluate existing prestressed concrete in need of repair and to determine effective strategies to extend service life and enhance performance. Further, as new technologies are developed, they are often used in some countries but not in others.

    Task Group 5.3 (TG5.3) has established two goals: 1) to develop a state-of-the-art report describing the evolution and development of prestressing systems and to identify recent innovations and advances, and 2) to develop a new bulletin that provides recommendations for the installation of post-tensioning systems.
