1 Structural Strengthening of Concrete Structures Truncation of Post-Tensioned Tendons Haydn Kirrage BE (Civil) Hons, MEngSc, MIEAust Australian Prestressing Services Pty Ltd, General Manager Post Tensioning Institute of Australia, Director 21st May 2014
2 Today s Presentation What are tendon truncations? When should truncations be used? Why should truncations be used? PTIA recommended truncation procedures
3 Where is the development length of a post-tensioned tendon defined in AS3600???
4 It isn t. Post-tensioned tendons are always fully anchored by proprietary anchorage's. Live End Anchorage
5 Dead End Anchorage
6 What are Tendon Truncations? A newly formed, epoxy based, anchorage zone in an existing post-tensioning tendon The anchorage zone is strengthened to achieve comparable performance to that of a proprietary cast in place anchorage system. AS Cl Anchorages for tendons shall be capable of developing the tendon the minimum tensile strength (f pb ) Truncations should enable compliance with the intent of the code.
7 What are Tendon Truncations?
8 When should truncations be used? PTIA promote the use of tendon truncations whenever the tendon is to be preserved. It is appropriate to consider that the only tendons that do not require truncations are those that become redundant following the structural modifications, often due to insufficient lengths or substantially different load paths.
9 Post formed holes Most tendon truncations are driven by a requirement for post-formed holes in post-tensioned slabs: Large openings for stair penetrations, service shafts etc in retrofit applications Smaller penetrations generally for mechanical requirements Often larger holes, and those with limited tolerance for lateral positioning, intersect existing post-tensioned tendons. Cores can often be detailed to avoid clashes with tendons. Detail smaller penetrations to prevent the need to truncate tendons whenever possible.
10 Truncations in two way slabs Middle Strip / Middle Strip. Generally low PT and reinforcement intensity. Often surplus capacity available in positive moment Regions.
11 Truncations in two way slabs Two Way Slabs Column Strip / Middle Strip Generally higher PT and reinforcement intensity in column strips.
12 Truncations in two way slabs Two Way Slabs Column Strip / Column Strip Avoid where possible! Highest PT and reinforcement intensity. Extreme care required to maintain both flexural and (punching) shear capacity.
13 Truncations in one way slabs / bands Slab areas Low intensity of PT and reinforcement Bands / Beams High PT and reinforcement intensity Coring holes in beams is best avoided if at all possible due to the congestion of PT and reinforcement and little chance of alternate load paths. Well placed and detailed soft zones in new structures can minimize the need for tendon truncation and other remedial works.
14 What about tendon grout? Firstly, it is very important to understand the role of grout in a posttensioned tendon. Let s review the load transfer requirements of grout and the concept of residual stress. For compliance with AS Cl , in relation to strength provisions, the assumption is that at any time, the minimum effective stress in the tendons is not less than 0.5 f pb.. Furthermore, at the time the tendon grouting occurs, the effective stress in the tendon will be more, say ~0.6 f pb.
15 What about tendon grout? Therefore the actual load transferred by the grout will be less, ~ 0.4 f pb To achieve proof (yield) stress, much less again, say ~ 0.3 f pb Tendon grout was never intended / required to transfer the full load in the tendon as would need to be the case if a truncation was not employed.
16 What about tendon grout? Secondly, is the tendon FULLY grouted? How is this to be guaranteed? Visual inspection? Past grouting practices over the years have not always been as reliable as present day processes. Grout in one location on a tendon does not guarantee the quality, or even presence, of grout in ALL locations.
17 What about tendon grout? Factors effecting grout performance: Tendon blockage s Blockage s can occur when grouting post-tensioning tendons. This generally occurs when the duct seam fails, or, when the ducts are pulled apart by unforeseen displacement during concreting. Blockages should be rectified immediately, but without specific quality control processes in place there is potential for un-grouted zones to be present.
18 What about tendon grout? Factors effecting grout performance: Bleed Excessive bleed manifests itself as voids at tendon highpoints, resulting in poor bond transfer at the most highly stressed portion of the tendon. Poor grout quality is never acceptable in post-tensioned concrete construction. However, a fully un-grouted tendon will only generally lose a portion of its ultimate strength, say ~25%, as long as it is anchored, ie. it remains tensioned. An un-anchored, poorly grouted tendon may have close to zero capacity.
19 What about tendon grout? Un-Grouted Tendons If any un-grouted tendons are discovered, it is important to highlight the issue to the structural consultant. Remedial grouting techniques are available to minimize the impact on fixtures and finishing's. Such remediation may need to extended to beyond the tendons being truncated!
20 What about tendon grout? Bond Strength The bond strength of the strand to the concrete, in relation to a posttensioned tendon will be limited by one, or a combination of, the following criteria: Strand to Grout Grout to Duct Duct to Concrete Concrete Strand Tendon Grout Duct
21 What about bursting reinforcement? Truncations can be thought of as transferring load by both side adhesion and end bearing. The epoxy bond to the side faces should have sufficient adhesion to allow the end bearing load to be within the range as defined by AS Cl to alleviate the need for special confining reinforcement. Cut$Line Side% Adhesion End% Bearing
22 Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations No specific code coverage or guidance, practices in industry vary. The below advice is quite generic, it may not be suitable for your specific application, refer to a PTIA member company for further details. 1. Safety First Is all in-slab power completely disconnected? Engineers Safety in Design! Check this appears on your documents. We recommend that this is a formal sign of requirement.
23 Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations 2. Is any necessary propping / supporting structure in position? Ensure adequate propping is in position prior to commencement. Consider the requirements of the completed structure AND the temporary cases that may occur during concrete removal and as a result of concrete removal. Also consider the potential of damage to existing tendons during concrete removal. Do not design propping to occur in areas that may need to be formed during the truncation process.
24 Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations 3. Locate post-tensioning tendon positions Depending on the structure, as-built drawings may or may not be available. We recommend GPR scanning, by a suitably experienced operator, to ensure accurate identification of all tendons. In addition, evidence of tendons on site can also be gathered from structure itself by suitably experienced personnel. Tendon staples Anchorage patches Pan recesses Grout hoses
25 4. Concrete removal Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations Sawcut the perimeter of the hole to around 10mm depth prevent over break on the surface, this also avoids feathered edges. Using large capacity jack hammers remove the concrete until the duct is visible or if if the tendon depth is known, restrict large hammer to within say 10-20mm of the duct.
26 Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations 4. Concrete removal Never cut reinforcement without approval No matter how tempting!! Highly reinforced areas are also symptomatic of highly stressed, more sensitive areas of the structure.
27 4. Concrete removal Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations Lighter capacity hammers can be used to remove concrete around the tendon, without damaging the strand itself. Ensure minimum clearances around the strand are achieved. Take care when removing duct from the tendon, the cut material can be very sharp!
28 5. Infill Material Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations Why epoxy? Can I use a very high strength micro-concrete? Generally. No. Epoxy typically has compressive strengths of the order of 100MPa. However, there are some high performance micro-concretes now available that achieve similar compressive strengths the issue here is two-fold: a) Strength gain: Normally truncations are required to be cut within a day or two of the installation, and, b) Tensile / Bond Strength: Epoxies generally exhibit FAR higher tensile / bond strength that cementitious products
29 5. Infill Material Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations Epoxy should be chosen for their hardened performance criteria, and very importantly, their ability to be placed to the required placement depth. Epoxy reacts and cures exothermically, producing high levels of heat never exceed the manufacturers recommendations on placement depths.
30 6. Placement of Epoxy Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations Whilst all manufacturers recommendations must be followed, the most common error at site level is, part kit mixing and incorrect proportioning. Incorrect mix proportions can result in epoxies that turn to jelly and take days / weeks to cure if at all, or, react so fast that they self fracture. Once the epoxy has been place to the required depth, say 80mm 100mm, central about the strand, broadcast course sand or fine aggregate to promote bond to the topping compound.
31 Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations 7. Making good Topping compounds, generally cementitious, should be selected to achieve performance criteria appropriate for the location. Vehicular, forklift access, external, architectural etc. Allow minimum 24hours curing time prior to saw-cutting tendon. Strand ends should be epoxy coated at the cut face.
34 Tendon truncations PTIA recommendations New truncations, ready for penetration removal
35 Special Cases Thin slabs / low tendon truncations Tend to break through the soffit when removing concrete. Ensure floor space under allows for debris collection and re-forming. Saw-cut slab soffit to 10mm after concrete removal at perimeter. If the strand to soffit cover is excessive, provide a cementitious self leveling grout bed to reduce the depth of epoxy under strand to within 35mm. If epoxy must be placed directly onto formwork ensure appropriate debonding agents, eg plastic sheet or proprietary debonding waxes are used on formwork. *** Epoxies have essentially zero resistance to fire ***
36 Special Cases Slabs on Ground Post-tensioned slabs on ground must remain completely isolated from all points of restraint including the sub-grade. If any break through occurs during the installation of the truncations, provide a self leveling grout bed on the sand / plastic to seal the hole prior to placement of epoxy infill. Allow grout to cure for 24hrs prior to placement of epoxy, or, as directed by the epoxy manufacturers instructions.
37 Special Cases Deep Sections Truncations in deep sections, with low tendons, are best avoided where possible. Take care when assessing slab / beam capacities and propping requirements during installation. Ensure infill material is acceptable for in service performance.
38 Anchorage Proximity Restrictions? We are often asked about how close to an anchorage can a truncation be formed. This often occurs when slabs are formed out of tolerance. If de-stressing can still occur and the tendons can be reset ie. if the tendons are not grouted or cut off, this is the preferred option. If grouting has already occurred, truncations will be required. In the rare event that the defect is noticed after the tendons have been cut and sealed, but not yet grouted other options are available.
39 Anchorage Proximity Restrictions? Post-tensioning anchors transfer VERY large forces. Never disturb concrete in anchorage zones! All distances shown are absolute minimums, consult a PTIA member for site specific details. Live Ends (Up to 5x12.7mm) Maintain a minimum distance of 1,000mm from the start of the truncation to the face of the anchorage 1,000mm The combined effect of adjacent anchorage's may require additional clearance.
40 Anchorage Proximity Restrictions? Pan Live Ends (Up to 5x12.7mm) Maintain a minimum distance of 1,500mm from the start of the truncation to the face of the Anchorage. 1,500mm It is good practice to visually inspect the grout hose for the presence of good grout, prior to commencing the work in the vicinity of any anchorage type
41 Anchorage Proximity Restrictions? Onioned Dead Ends (Up to 5x12.7mm) Maintain a minimum distance of 700mm from the start of the truncation to the start of the bonded length. The exclusion zones noted are for both the vibration of the demolition and the void created for the truncation.
42 Oops I ve hit a tendon! Inevitably, situations arrive where tendons are inadvertently cut before a truncation is provided, often during coring operations. Partial Severance Experienced core drill operators generally identify when they hit a post-tensioned tendon, which may result in partial severance only. Often a core drill bit will effect only an edge strand or hit the top of the strands themselves. Each strand is comprised of 7 wires, in many cases partial capacity may be available.
43 Oops I ve hit a tendon! Partial severance my not require a truncation if the partial capacity can be justified in a design review. Full Severance a) Cuts where prestress loss is measurable Cores, sawcuts, etc. b) Cuts where prestress loss is unknown Mechanically broken or disturbed concrete A truncation should be installed at a distance from the cut point so as to minimize the chance of further slippage during mechanical concrete removal. In case a) above, it is useful to monitor for any prestress loss. Refer to a PTIA member company for further advice.
44 Consideration for Logistics Builder / Developer Noise & Vibration Dust Out of hours work required?? Floors below Access if concrete removal penetrates slab?? Isolation of in slab power and other services Timeframe highly dependent on the nature of the truncation Always allow for a minimum 24hour curing period, ~ 60MPa.
45 Summary Tendon truncations, performed correctly, allow for surety in design. Tendon performance may be guaranteed for the life of the structure. Relatively simple and economical to install. PTIA member companies can assist with the design and execution of tendon truncations. THANK YOU
