This short video show the stressing an unbonded post-tensioning tendon with a hydraulic jack (8-inch stroke). This tendon was roughly 130 feet long so it required two strokes. The elongation for a 100-foot-long tendon is roughly 8 inches. Refer to the Post-Tensioning Institutes Field Procedures Manual for Unbonded Single-Strand Tendons Chapter 6 for additional information.
