ABSTRACT

The consequences of two or three tendons becoming severely corroded in a prestressed masonry structure are likely to be more serious than if a few bars of a comparable reinforced masonry structure were to corrode. A cautious approach to protecting prestressing tendons from corrosion therefore appears to be warranted particularly as there is, as yet, little long-term experience of the in-service performance of prestressed masonry. Accepting that a cautious approach is required, proposals for the corrosion protection of tendons in new prestressed masonry construction are presented.
