PRESTRESSING: PART 2. ANCHORAGES AND END BLOCKS. CURRENT PRACTICE SHEET 2P/19/1, NO 43

The broad principles involved in the development and use of anchorages are examined, and reference is made to methods of using jacks during stressing operations. Proving tests in relation to both static tests and dynamic testing are discussed. A general description of end blocks, described simply as that concrete immediately behind a post-tensioning anchorage is given, and reference is made to design methods considered in British Standard Code of Practice 110 and Construction Industry Research and Information Association Guide no 1. The main points to be taken into account in detailing end block reinforcement are presented. Reference is made to acceptance tests designed to ensure adequate performance as detailed in British Standard 4447.
