7 Wire Strained Testing

by Prof. Bassem Andrawes, Andrew Pozolo


In one phase of an IDOT-sponsored project, a series of fifty-six pullout tests on seven-wire steel strand embedded in self-consolidating concrete and conventional concrete blocks were tested. Experimental data was used to derive bond stress-slip relationships for steel strand embedded in the two concrete types. The relationships are being implemented in finite element analyses to predict transfer and development lengths in prestressed SCC girders. T he analytical lengths will be verified through large-scale testing in the project's next phase.
