Description

This manual provides recommendations for economical post-tensioned slab-on-ground foundations. It presents guidelines for soil investigation, design, and construction of post-tensioned residential and light commercial slabs on expansive or compressible soils. It includes three complete design examples and information on the design of industrial floors on stable soils. The third edition provides notable revisions in several chapters, meant to clarify or guide the designer in the application of this design procedure and its limitations. In addition, it offers a design method for “uniform thickness foundations” and modifies the permissible shear stress equation.
