Post-Tensioned Concrete Construction and Observation Issues
The webinar focuses on the construction of elevated post-tensioned slabs, beams and foundation systems focusing on field issues that often arise which may affect the performance of the structure. The layout of the strands and the interaction of the tendons with the penetrations required by the plumber, electrician and other trades will be covered. The webinar primarily consist of construction photographs to highlight what an engineer should look for during an observation and what can occur if corrective measures are not taken. A working knowledge of post-tensioned concrete design is not required.
