for your next repair, rehabilitation and strengthening project:
strength and serviceability of a structure that has experienced
deterioration can be evaluated and restored to its original or greater
strength and serviceability.
post-tensioning can be used to increase
and/or restore, the capacity of most any structural element
(beams and girders, one-way slabs, two-way
slabs) made of any material (prestressed concrete, nonprestressed
concrete, structural steel, wood).
Disruption: Ability to
existing member with minimal headroom requirements and no significant
added weight. Strengthening can be
done with little or no disruption of existing
executed concurrently with normal building operations without any large
shutdowns or closures.
post-tensioning applies active loads directly
to the strengthened member so it can supplement existing capacity to
desired degree. Other strengthening
systems, such as added steel, concrete beams, or FRP wrapping are
in the absence of jacking, the strengthened member fails to mobilize
