Safety Matters of Prestressed Anchorage
- When cutting the prestressed tendons (PC strand), be careful not to use the arc for cutting, but to use a grinding wheel saw.
- The related stressing jack and electric oil pump used in the prestressed construction need to be regularly calibrated and maintained.
- When installing prestressed anchorages, be sure to align the anchor plates and tighten the wedges while ensuring that there should be a uniform position. In the process of tightening the wedge, you must not beat it too hard to avoid the occurrence of damage to the wedge.
- The prestressed construction must be carried out by professionally trained construction personnel, and relevant safety measures must be taken to avoid unnecessary losses.
- After anchoring, the exposed length of the prestressed tendons shall not be less than 30 mm, and the anchorages must be protected with end-capped concrete. If the anchorages need to be exposed for a long time, effective anti-rust treatment must also be carried out. If the anchorage is found to be rusty, it must be cleaned up in time to avoid slippage during installation.
- The prestressed anchorages must be properly preserved.
