Drilling of ground anchor completed, HT tendon installation checked.
Grouting strength checked.

Now its time for stressing and locking of tendons, we will insert the HT strands
on to the anchor head & place bearing plate to water and weld than a hydraulic jack
will be connected to a pump with pressure gauge indicator above the anchor head.

Stressing will be done in two cycles with a max load of 125% of required load and will

be checked for 15 minutes for load reduction meantime we will note the elongations in stressing formats if the load reduction between two cycles is in the range of 5% anchor will be passed. Upon the completion of the second load, cycle anchor will be reloaded to 110% of working load and will be locked.
