Post Tensioning

The Principle Idea of Prestressed concrete is to introduce compression in the Tension zone or reinforced concrete in order to reduce deflection and cracking

Post Tensioning Construction Procedure

  • Post tensioning ducts are placed in the slab according to the design profile.
  • High strength strands inserted inside
  • Live ends anchors are placed at the other ends of the strands.
  • Minimum reinforcement are placed according to the design.
  • Concrete are poured in normal way of reinforced concrete slabs
  • After 12 hours initial stress of 20% are done in order to reduce the plastic cracks
  • Full stress of the tendons are done after 3 days when the concrete strength reach at least 25 N/mm2
  • The tendons are grouted with special grot in the bonded system
  • The anchors places are closed with a grout.
  • The scaffolding can be removed for further construction.
  • Dead ends are made by special at the other ends of the strands

Bonded & Unbonded Systems

Bonded System

  • Flat duct usually galvanized steel 20m By 70mm is used
  • Multi strands are inserted inside
  • The duct is grouted with non-shrinking grout after full tensioning of the strands
  • One end is dead end and the other is live end unless the tendon is too long

Un-bonded System

  • Round Sheathing ducts (usually plastic) are used.
  • Single strand is inserted in the duct.
  • The duct if fll grease for corrosion protection.
  • Two live ends anchors are used.

Advantages of post tensioning System

  • Construction proceed like ordinary cast in place reinforced concrete
  • Less time is required for the placement of the PT and conventional reinforcement
  • Faster construction can be achieved because scaffoldings can be removed after 3 days
  • It more economic than reinforced concrete
  • Less slabs thickness is required which resulted in saving of the floor heights and loads on the columns ad footings in addition to giving more flexibility in AC design.
  • Less deflection and cracks under service loads.
