SECTION 03 41 33 PRECAST STRUCTURAL PRETENSIONED CONCRETE

If you choose to require pretensioned anchor rods you would need to define how much pretension is required how that pre tension is to be achieved and how that pretension is to be maintained against such factors as creep in the concrete and the variations in anchoring system The adhesive bonds to the dust and the dust is bonded to nothing 5 Using an anchor which does not have the capacity for the job A particular anchor may be adequate on a horizontal surface but totally inadequate when used on a 6

Prestressed concrete anchors are often used for resisting cyclic or dynamic loading caused by wind or seismic events They are also used to limit or restrict structural movement due to anchor steel elongation Common applications for prestressed concrete anchors are tower anchoring foundation repair and heavy machinery tie down anchor rod setting procedures and tolerances The impor tance of the accurate placement of anchor rods cannot be over emphasized This is the one of the key components to safely erecting and accurately plumbing the building The material in this Guide is

for anchor rods The ASTM F1554 anchor rods are available in three grades of 36 55 and 105 ksi minimum yield stress material and are available in specified lengths with threading lengths as specified ASTM A449 is a general material standard that is2021 2 12 nbsp 0183 32 Pretensioning the rod can improve it s fatigue life but anchor rods can effectively be pretensioned only against steel Even when tensioning 55 ksi rod 24 in long it only takes concrete creep shrinkage of 0 05 in to relieve all pretension
