with the specifications.
 The Flat Anchorages are fixed to the end formwork by
support bars to avoid any displacement during concreting.
 The Flat Anchorages must be orientated perpendicularly to
the cable axis with the grout vent at the top.
 If the side formwork is to be erected earlier, the main
contractor has to arrange for holes to be provided at the
formwork for each anchorage to accommodate protruding
strands.
 Tolerances for vertical tendon profiles are 10mm for high
and low points.
 Tolerances for horizontal tendon profiles are 50mm (to
avoid small M&E openings / pipes or other obstructions).
Specialist designer shall be consulted for tolerances more
than 50mm.
 Handle ducts with care and no stepping on ducts.
 Tendon support bars and bar-chairs are placed at 1m interval
and secured with binding wire to avoid movement during
concreting.

 Duct joints are sealed with tape.


 Check visually on the ducts’ straightness and do necessary
adjustment before concreting.
 Grout hoses must be protected from being embedded or
removed during concreting.

8. Stressing

Stressing shall not commence unless the main contractor has


confirmed the concrete of the slab / beam has achieved the
minimum cube strength at transfer. Refer to general notes of the
project.

Preparation for stressing


 Removal of the side formwork and anchorage recess former
(polyfoam).
 Placing of wedge plates and wedges. This operation must be
carried out after concreting so that the anchorages are not
fouled by grout.
 Ensure the protruding strands length is sufficient for stressing.
 The theoretical elongation calculations must be approved by
the consultant before stressing.

INTERPRETATION OF STRESSING REPORTS AND


SAMPLES OF STRESSING REPORT
Revision: 0
METHOD STATEMENT FOR UPS
Issued: 29-Jan-2016
POST – TENSIONING SYSTEMS
Page: A.4 - 2

Interpretation of Stressing Reports

1. The force-elongation relationship is more complex than one expects.


Through our experience, we recognize the fact that theory and
practice sometimes deviates from each other in this aspect. The
variation of site measured elongation with the theoretical one could
be due to various reasons and parameters, such as, modulus of
elasticity, elastic shortening of concrete, actual stress distribution
along the length of tendon, the assumed wobble and friction
coefficients, measuring error etc.

2. Hence, the allowable degree of deviation of the measured elongation


from the theoretical one is difficult to ascertain. In our opinion,
stressing force as measured with a calibrated pressure gauge on the
stressing jack should always be given top consideration and the
elongation results are to serve as a check to the overall force
transferred to the tendons.

3. In accordance with the recommendations by the Federation


Internationale de la Precontrainte (FIP), the average extension shall
be within 8% per pour (i.e. summary of extension deviation of all
beams in the respective pour).

4. It is a common occurrence for site extension of individual short


tendons (less than 10m length) to exceed +8% tolerance due to the
relatively high percentage of deviation for a 1mm addition extension
(e.g. 1mm extension over the theoretical elongation of 50mm will
result in 2.0% deviation).

5. In the case of the site extension of individual strand (FA) exceeding


+8% tolerance, the following procedures should be adopted: -

Step 1: Hold the final pressure for 15 seconds during the


stressing operation.

Step 2: If no drop or drop of gauge pressure is less than or


equal to 3MPa, record the extension readings (before
and after the holding of pressure). Unless significant
differences in the readings are observed, the results
shall be considered satisfactory and acceptable.

METHOD STATEMENT FOR UPS
Issued: 29-Jan-2016
POST – TENSIONING SYSTEMS
Page: A.4 - 3

Check if the average deviation of tendons over the pour


/ beam falls within 8%. If so, the results shall be
considered satisfactory and acceptable.

Step 3: This procedure must be carried out in a single


operation during the stressing of the tendon.

6. If the site extension of an individual strand (FA) falls below -8%


tolerance, the following procedures should be adopted:

Step 1: Check whether the average deviation of tendons over


the pour/ beam falls within 8%. If so, the results shall
be considered satisfactory and acceptable.

Step 2: If the average deviation of tendons over the pour/


beam falls below -8%, stress the tendon with
extension deviation below -8% to maximum 80% UTS.

If the extension falls within the allowance tolerance


of 8% UTS, the pressure increase shall stop
(Maximum up to 80% UTS).

7. NO tendon should be stressed beyond 80% UTS. Approval in


writing must be obtained from the Consultant and Specialist if it is
to be carried under special circumstances.

8. If the site extension of individual strand (FA) falls below -17% or


exceeds +17%, the following procedures should be carried out:-

Step 1: Detension and re-stress the strand (FA).

Step 2: Check if the extension of the tendon falls within ±8%,


if so, the results shall be considered satisfactory and
acceptable.

Step 3: If the extension falls between +8% and +17% or


between -8% and -17% , then go to Step 5 or Step 6
respectively.

The values stated are average values. Due to the use of natural raw material in our
products, the actual value determined on an individual delivery may deviate slightly,
without compromising product suitability.

Application
Substrate preparation Concrete surfaces or duct to be grouted must be sound, clean and free from oil, grease,
laitance or any other loose adhering particles. Pre-wet before grouting.

Material preparation For best result of mixing, always use mechanically powered grout mixer.
Place the required amount of water into the mixer.
With the mixer running, slowly add in the neat cement (and sand, if required) and mixed
until even consistency, then add-in StoCrete AEG. Do not overdose StoCrete AEG as it
will increase expansion and cause frothing.
Mix continuously for approximately 3 mins until a smooth, even consistency is obtained.
