Beam post-tensioning. With post-tensioned beams, we suggest the use of the C range system, because of the following characteristics: use of 13mm and 15mm. Freyssinet’s technical services design anchors, jacks and installation equipment, and also post-tensioning kits for prestressing of structures). ETA and CE. Freyssinet group has been active in the Middle east region since the early s, We supply and provide a comprehensive post tensioning system including.

The applications of such type of methods are different. The sides of ducts may obstruct the stretching of the reinforcement at the end remote from the jack arrangement while this part may not receive the full tension if properly not carried out.

The central hole passing axially through the plug will permit cement grout injected in it. If the limited sizes of the concrete are to be produced as mass-production then this method is adopted economically. Depending upon the situation and structural members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used. In the earlier days, pre-tensioning system was mostly used but nowadays the post tensioning system is used. High tension steel wires of diameter varying from 5 mm to 8 mm about 12 numbers are properly arranged to form a group into a cable with a spiral spring inside.

It is further used to assists to transfer the reaction into the concrete. Such type of method consists of stretching the wires at greater distance apart. As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly. The numbers of systems are available which are patented for the linear prestressing and with modifications to circular prestressing also. This arrangement will give an additional restraint against the problem of slipping of the tendons.

The spiral spring provides the means for appropriate clearance between the wires and therefore it provides the channel which is cement grouted afterward. When the curved cable is provided them the above-mentioned defects may be produced. To get a idea about the stretching of the steel it is necessary to do the extension measurements. These cylinders are then kept in proper position and then the conical plugs are being pushed into the conical holes after cables are properly tightened.


From the above systems, it is clear that the systems for pre-tensioning prestressing are different from the system used for the post-tensioning systems. The Hoyer system is generally used for the production on large scale of pre-tensioned structural element of the structure only. Also in one line, the remaining wires will be cut off. Also, the other systems behave like the above principles and more specifically it is used for the precast beams. It is very necessary to measure the load applied with the help of jack arrangement and the extension of reinforcement so that the proper prestress in the reinforcement will be ensured.

The anchorage system consists of a cylinder of good quality concrete and is provided with some corrugations tensiobing outside parts. This has a central hole and is provided with heavy circumferential reinforcement. The following ways to do it: Then the concrete is poured so that many structural elements can be produced in a single line and for that, the shuttering should be provided.

The different wedging devices and arrangement of wires are available in the different systems. There are many ways to do the stretching of prestressing wires in the method of post-tensioning once the concrete is hardened.

This thing is properly enclosed in the thin metal steel. Tensioninv methods may be adopted at the site tenaioning on the ground and then it can be hoisted to the proper position. There are other methods for post-tensioning system involving Magnel Blaton system, Gifford Udall system, P.



This is the way to put space between the wires which will be filled with cement grout. In other cases, there is the possibility of extension in some other part of the tendons which are overstressed. Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut or released.

While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical. The economical length of the concrete member should is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted.

When the freyyssinet are pulled and tightened with the help of jack arrangement against the end of concrete element then the required prestressing force is obtained suitably. Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems. L standard system, Lee-Mccall system, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing. At the end of the member, the excessive bearing stresses are produced because of the anchoring devices which bear against the cracks.

By this method, the prestress is transferred to the concrete structure as there is bond between the tendons and concrete. The method of prestressing involves pre-tensioning and post-tensioning methods only in the practical cases. Therefore the prestressing force should be measured.

In the case of pre-tensioning method prestress, there is a compressive force in the concrete which is because of the bond between the concrete and steel wires and that is kept stretched between the buttresses.

Once the wires are stretched then they are anchored in the stretched positions against feeyssinet end of concrete member with the help of wedging device.
