sequence, type of jack and pressure-monitoring devices, anchorage set, tendon elongation andtendon cutoff procedures, grouping, spacing, placingsequence, conduit size, supports and locations, and tendonsupports.C. Calculations: Submit sealed detailed calculations prepared bya qualified professional engineer registered in the state wherethe project is located to substantiate stressing procedures. Alllosses shall be accounted for in the calculations. Submit thefollowing:1. Calculations, prepared under the supervision of aqualified registered professional engineer, of losses dueto anchorage seating, elastic shortening, creep, shrinkage,relaxation, friction and wobble, used to determine tendonsizes and number.2. Calculations of test results of adequacy of anchorage.3. Statistical and field proof of stressing and fixed endseating losses.4. Calculations for final required jacking elongationcorresponding to final jacking force of tendons.D. Mill Test Reports:1. Furnish certified Mill Test Reports for each coil orpack of strand, containing as a minimum the following testinformation:a. Heat number and identification.b. Standard chemical analysis for heat of steel.c. Ultimate tensile strength.d. Yield strength at 1 percent extension under load.e. Elongation at failure.f. Modulus of elasticity.
 
g. Diameter and net area of strand.h. Type of material (stress-relieved or low relaxation).2. Base relaxation losses for low relaxation type materialon relaxation tests of representative samples for a periodof 1000 hours, when tested at 21
 
degrees C (70 degrees F)and stressed initially to not less than 70 percent ofminimum guaranteed breaking strength of strand.3. Tests in accordance with ASTM A416, and ASTM E328.E. Calibration Tests: Stressing rams and gauges shallindividually be identified and calibrated against known standardsat intervals not exceeding six months. Submit calibrationcertificates for each jack used to Resident Engineer.F. Records: Keep
