Most of the foundation pit support projects are designed according to temporary structure, and the service life is usually one year. However, some deep foundation pits are shut down due to various reasons, which leads to the overuse of some foundation pit support structures during the restart period. Prestressed anchor cable is the main force component to ensure the stability of foundation pit support. It is necessary to analyze the loss of prestress of anchor cable when the foundation pit is reconstructed in excess of time in order to ensure the safety of foundation pit. This paper discusses the causes and changing rules of prestressing loss of anchor cables, and puts forward the analysis ideas of prestressing loss of anchor cables in overdue foundation pits.
