PT SOG on expansive soil

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I am designing a Post Tensioned Slab On Grade for the first time.  As an 
example I am following the manual writen by PTI entitled "Design and 
construction of Post-Tensioned Slabs-On-Ground".  The example and the manual 
does a great job in explaining how to design a PT s.o.g. with perimiter 
loaded slabs.  The mention very little about interior loads from columns and 
from interior bearing walls.

My question to the PT SOG experts are, how do I handle the interior loads on 
my Slab on Grade?  I have currently split up my slab into rectangular 
sections, but there are some areas I have interior columns and intrior 
bearing walls.

thanks for any advice on this matter.
