Fixed Anchors

Fixed Anchors are also commonly known as Dead Anchors, where no stressing is done in prestressed concrete structure. This type of anchors can be done with Compression Fittings or the PC strand is deliberately shaped to form a Bond Head (also commonly known as pear / onion shape head) to bond with the prestressed concrete structure. Prestressing force is still been transferred from the live end to the dead end after stressing.

This kind of anchorage system is very common in post tensioning work and it comes in flat and multistrand configuration. It provides the best solution when strand has to be push through on site. Its generic dimension and layout of tendons is similar to Stress Anchors.
