Execution Work in Post Tension Slabs
This is Civil final year project work on Detailed study and execution work in post tension slabs. Post-Tensioning is a method of reinforcing concrete, masonry and other structural elements. Post-Tensioning is a method of pre-stressing. Prestressed concrete is basically concrete in which internal stresses of a suitable magnitude and distribution are introduced so that the stresses resulting from external loads are counteracted to a desired degree.

Above image shows different stages in post tensioning. Post-Tensioned reinforcing consists of very high strength steel strands or bars. Typically, strands are used in horizontal applications like foundations, slabs, beams, and bridges; and bars are used in vertical applications like walls and columns.
In Reinforced Concrete members, the prestress is commonly introduced by tensioning the steel reinforcement. The tensile strength of plain concrete is only a fraction of its compressive strength and the problem of it being deficient in tensile strength appears to have been the driving factor in the development of the composite material known as “Reinforced Concrete”.
