Re: Post tensioning Detailing-Where and how?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Preparation of the installation drawings for a post-tensioned building are an important part of post-tensioned construction.  In fact, they are the most important part.  They should only be done by someone with a very good understanding of what they are doing. 

You obviously are completely unqualified.  Could you please post the name of the post-tensioning supplier that is asking you to do this work, so that all of the engineers subscribing to this list can refuse to allow that supplier on any job with which they are involved.

And another question.  Why would anyone want to hire you, when they can have the same work done by your cousin back in India for 1/5th of the price.  Your cousin certainly couldn't do any worse than you.
