GUI G 1 Guide to the design of anchor blocks for post-tensioned prestressed concrete members
The structural behaviour of anchor blocks is briefly outlined, followed by design instructions for anchor blocks on both rectangular and non-rectangular members. Additional design considerations included are: forces due to curved cables, influence of support reaction, anchorages near corners, and bearing stresses behind anchor plates. Requirements for primary, secondary (or equilibrium), and end face steel reinforcement are given. A detailed design example shows how the recommendations in the Guide can be used.
CIRIA was formerly known as the Construction Industry Research and Information Association. They are a member-based research and information organisation who publish reports and technical papers covering building and civil engineering as well as transport and utilities infrastructure.
