Topic: Design of Post-tensioned Floors


Abstract: 

Post-tensioning is a prestressing method in which concrete is set and attains strength, then steel tendons are stressed and anchored, applying compression to the concrete. Starting with the architect's floor plan, Dr. Aalami will walk through the design of post-tensioned floors, step by step, and then conclude with construction drawings.
