(civil engineering)

anchorage deformation, anchorage slip

The shortening of tendons in prestressed concrete due to the deformation of the anchorage or slippage of the tendons in the anchorage device when the prestressing force is transferred to the anchorage device.

In order to incorporate drop in strength and stiffness due to bond failures and anchorage slip losses, reductions in the reinforcement modulus are proposed.
Further anchorage slip losses at different loading instants are difficult to be considered in the simulation.
