Abstract

The contribution of ruptured tendons to the residual strength of bonded post-tensioned concrete structures is currently assessed based on pre-tensioned concrete bond models. However, this approach is inaccurate due to the inherent differences between pre-tensioned and post-tensioned concrete. In this paper, a non-linear 3D finite element model is developed for the re-anchoring of a ruptured tendon in post-tensioned concrete. The model is validated using full-field displacement measurement from 33 post-tensioned concrete prisms and previous experimental data on beams from the literature. The influence of different parameters was investigated, including tendon properties (i.e. diameter, roughness), duct properties (i.e. diameter, thickness, material), initial prestress, concrete strength, grout strength, grout voids, stirrups, and strands, on the tendon re-anchorage. The most influential parameters are found to be tendon and duct properties.
