Stages of Post Tensioning

Stages of Post Tensioning In post-tensioning systems, the ducts for the tendons (or strands) are placed along with the reinforcement before the casting of concrete.The tendons are placed in the ducts after the casting of

Applications of Post-Tensioning

Applications of Post-Tensioning There are post-tensioning applications in almost all facets of construction. In building construction, post-tensioning allows longer clear spans, thinner slabs, fewer beams and more slender, dramatic elements. Thinner slabs mean less concrete
