Developing Girder Strands into the Cap Beam for a Positive Moment Connection

To maximize the seismic resistance in the longitudinal direction of a bridge made from precast, pre-stressed concrete girders, the columns, cap beam and girders must be connected in such a way as to provide flexural resistance. Therefore, the goal of the research is to determine a good method for anchoring the strands in the cap beam, and to verify it by testing.
