Post-Tensioned CMU

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] Has anybody tried using post-tensioning strands instead of mild reinforcement for CMU vertical reinforcement? Are there any proprietary systems out there which use this approach? Is it necessary to grout the cells if post-tensioning is used?

I'm trying to determine whether this is a viable option for CMU reinforcement.

Thanks.
