Post-tensioning (P.T.) is a method of strengthening concrete structures using steel strands. These strands are installed in mono-strand or multi-strand applications. By incorporating post-tensioning steel, concrete structures can achieve greater spans. The P.T. strands are installed in beams, girders, and slabs before the concrete pour.
Once the concrete is poured and adequately cured, the P.T. strands are stressed, followed by form removal. All these steps are carefully controlled and sequenced according to engineering design requirements and the concrete’s strength at each stage.
