Eric, Contact Cliff Freyermuth in Phoenix, AZ (602) 997-9931, Fax: (602) 997-9965. He was the founding director of the Post-tension Institute and is also a consultant on segmental P/T concrete bridges. He has a segmental bridge consulting practice with a similar name. I'm sure that he can point you in the right direction. I don't know if he has a web site or an e-mail address. A.
