This manual represents the current state of practice in the application of permanent and temporary prestressed rock and soil anchors using high-strength prestressing steel. The recommendations provide practical guidance for the design, installation, and testing of grouted prestressed rock and soil anchors. These recommendations supersede the 1996 edition and include major revisions in the requirements for:
–Grouts and grouting activities; and
–The use of epoxy-coated strand.
Additionally, numerous changes were made to further enhance the understanding of anchor technology.
This document is prepared by the PTI Committee for Prestressed Rock and Soil Anchors with input and review by the International Association of Foundation Drilling Anchored Earth Retention Committee.
98 pages; 8½ x 11 in. (soft cover)
