RE: PT repair

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gail,
 
Great.  On a recent renovation project several PT cables got hit.  Long story, typical problems.  Anyway, the structural engineer said pull the broken cables.  I about freaked and indicated to my client that their were ways to repair cables and pulling cable out was not the smartest thing to do until repair alternatives had been evaluated.  I'm glad to see some common sense information on this all to frequent problem.

For those who were interested in reading my article in Structure Magazine,  it is listed under something called Building Blocks.
 
From www.structuremag.org, select Current Issue,  then scroll down on the right side until you get to the Building Blocks item.   (It is under Columns.)
 
There is also another article on post-tensioning in this issue.  I personally found some of the author's statements kind of amusing.
