Abstract

The experimental project described in this paper was aimed at determining the feasibility of an anchor system for a carbon FRP tendon that makes use of expansive grout. Of particular interest was the determination of the anchor length that allows to attain the full tensile capacity of the tendon without tendon slippage prior to failure. In this project, the grouted anchor consisted of a steel pipe (with or without caps) filled with expansive grout. The internal pressure resulting from the confinement of the grout restrains the tendon when direct tension is applied to it. One carbon FRP tendon type and one steel pipe type were used. Two expansive cementitious grouts were considered. Short-term, quasi-static, tensile tests were conducted without any prior mechanical or environmental conditioning. It was demonstrated that the anchoring system was very successful both in terms of ease of installation and performance.
