The paper shows the case study of modified stay cable’s anchorage in concrete base. The idea of modification is the introduction of additional rings on the formwork tube to improve the composite action between steel and concrete. Comparison between tested anchorage and typical element used in commercial systems is discussed. Composite force between steel and concrete in stay cable’s anchorage is presented. Influence of introduced ring on load capacity and behavior of entire anchorage is discussed.
