Description

The first edition of the Post-Tensioning Manual was published in 1972. The manual provided the industry standard for the design and construction of post-tensioned structures. Subsequent editions reflected the growing use of post-tensioning.

There have been significant advancements in post-tensioning technology in the last two decades. Post-tensioning is now used in many new areas, ranging from residential slabs-on-ground to large stay cable bridges. As a result, the sixth edition contains updated information on the current practices in the use, design, and construction of post-tensioning. The sixth edition has been extensively rewritten and expanded from the fifth edition, which was published in 1990. The manual contains 12 new chapters that give design guidance on modern applications of post-tensioning. All of the original chapters have been completely revised and modified to reflect the current industry practices. New topics include seismic design, post-tensioned concrete floors, parking structures, slabs-on-ground, bridges, stay cables, storage structures, barrier cables, dynamic and fatigue, durability, inspection and maintenance, and field and plant certification. This book is an invaluable resource for practicing engineers, architects, students, educators, contractors, inspectors, and building officials, providing basic information and essential principles of post-tensioning.
