Transfer and Development Length of Prestressing Tendons in Full-scale AASHTO Prestressed Concrete Girders using Self-Consolidating Concret

Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is the designation of a new innovative type of high performance concrete that does not have to be consolidated in order to fill up a form and to encase reinforcement. A limited amount of research has been completed on the structural performance of precast prestressed concrete girders in terms of transfer and development length in SCC. The primary objective of this project is to first, identify research results on transfer and development lengths for prestressing tendons in SCC. Next, make recommendations on any necessary design changes.
