Re: Surface Post-tension stressing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ronald,

Sometimes stressing access is not available at the edges. Sometimes it is more economical for some of the tendons to terminate at places other than at the ends of the slab/member, especially where span lengths vary or loads vary.

Can then needs to be taken to ensure that this is handled properly in the design.

Depending on the configuration, these tendons could be top or bottom stressed.
