Re: Post tensioning Detailing-Where and how?

You are right (and I was wondering why this abutment layout is not working out)!
Apparently and hopefully, gods are not very vengeful. I hope I was fast enough to admit my mistake and to repent.
I also wanted to mention Karl von Terzaghi (although he was not a structural engineer, but very close) http://www.ejgecom/People/Terzaghi/terzagi4.htm

Stephen Prokofyevich  Timoshenko. If you call a god by the wrong name
all of your structures will collapse. And while we're naming immigrant
engineering greats you want to remember Den Hartog, Hetenyi, Nadai and
H.S. Tsien. And Dr Heinz Gorges to whom I owe a great deal.
