DUCTILITY OF PRESTRESSING STEEL

DUCTILIDAD EN ACEROS DE PRETENSADO

THIS PAPER DISCUSSES THE EXPERIMENTAL TECHNIQUES OF MEASURING THE DUCTILITY OF PRESTRESSING STEEL. THE STUDY OF THE DUCTILITY OF STEEL IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE DUCTILITY IS THE PARAMETER WHICH INDICATES EXISTING SAFETY WITH RESPECT TO THE POSSIBILITY OF UNEXPECTED FAILURE. THE DISTRIBUTION OF LONGITUDINAL DEFORMATION IS DETERMINED IN THE METAL WIRE AT THE MOMENT WHEN THE PEAK REDUCTION IN CROSS SECTION IS FORMED AND IMMEDIATELY BEFORE FAILURE. A LARGE VARIETY OF SAMPLES HAS BEEN STUDIED, WHICH ALLOWED THE INFLUENCE OF VARIOUS FACTORS (SUCH AS LENGTH AND DIAMETER OF THE SAMPLES, MATERIAL, ETC) ON THE DUCTILITY PARAMETERS TO BE ANALYSED. RESULTS DRAWN FROM THE EXPERIMENTAL TESTS ARE ANALYSED AND SOME INTERESTING CONCLUSIONS ARE DRAWN.
