Part 1: Design of Post-Tensioned Diaphragms
The webinar covers the design of post-tensioned diaphragms highlighting the benefits of precompression to reduce or eliminate additional drag and chord reinforcement. A discussion of how concrete diaphragms should be model are presented and how a traditional steel or wood diaphragm approach does not apply to a concrete membrane. Construction photographs and details are shown to clarify the design intent.
