Effect of Prestress Levels and Jacking Methods on Friction Losses in Curved Prestressed Tendons

The effects of prestressing methods and prestress levels on the friction losses of prestressed tendons were evaluated in this study. Two full-scale prestressed concrete girders were fabricated and used for the friction loss experiment. The prestress level was varied from 13% to 45% of the ultimate t...
