Grout in prestressing works serves the following purposes:

(i) Protect the tendon against corrosion.

(ii) Improve the ultimate capacity of tendon.

(iii) Provide a bond between the structural member and the tendon.

(iv) In case of failure, the anchorage is not subject to all strain energy.


This question is taken from book named – A Self Learning Manual – Mastering Different Fields of Civil Engineering Works (VC-Q-A-Method) by Vincent T. H. CHU.
