This investigation is a pilot study of the bond characteristics of prestressed members pre-tensioned with multiple layers of strand. The primary objective was to develop information in regard to the additional flexural bond attained in strands found near the lower extremity of pre-tensioned members as a result of the pinching effect of the end reactions.
