TG5.8 - External tendons for bridges

TG5.8 - External tendons for bridges

 
  • As a result of durability issues with bonded internal tendons, external tendons in bridge construction have become more popular in several countries. External tendons are now widely used throughout the world. While many of the technological aspects of external tendons look similar to internal bonded tendons, there are significant differences between the two, e.g. in terms of corrosion protection, tendon deviation blocks, tendon curvature and lay out, tendon replaceability, tendon force transfer to the structure, and ultimate strength. These differences merit the amendment of existing specifications, or the preparation of new specifications for external tendon design, testing, installation, duct durability, corrosion protection, maintenance and eventual replacement.

    The goal of Task Group 5.8 (TG5.8) is to prepare a technical report on the applications of external tendons in bridges from different countries and focusing on system related topics with minor implementation of design aspects of the structure using external tendons.
