> Hello,
> I have been asked (directed?) by a contractor on a design-build
> project to design a post-tensioned slab on grade, downturned at the
> edges for footings, with thickened slabs for interior bearing walls.
> The structure is wood framed one and two story in a warm temperature
> climate where frost is not a problem. There are no known soil
> problems.
> We do most of our work in colder climates with 30" minimum frost cover
> and standard footings. Frankly, I am unfamiliar with this type of
> construction and am looking for guidance in the form of the latest
> publications on p/t slabs on grade. We have info in our library, but
> it is fairly old.
> Any help or suggestions would be appreciated so I can quickly get up
> to speed. I don't normally check this list on a daily basis, so a
> private response would be helpful.
> Thanks,
