We've had a question from a contractor bidding on a precast prestressed beam project we've designed. Essentially, they're asking if it is O.K. to flame-cut the prestressing strands in the box beams that they are bidding on, to effect transfer of prestress. This sounds fishy to us, since our spec (handed down from generation to generation, and reflecting the Texas DOT specifications) describes a method of gradually gang-releasing the tendons until full transfer of prestress force to the member is achieved, then cutting them. Does PCI (or any industry group) have a standard procedure that addresses this? Please answer ASAP. Bill Polhemus, P.E. Dannenbaum Engineering Co., Inc.
