The use of post-tensioned (PT) concrete is on the increase, particularly for high-rise construction where the saving in the slab depths compared to alternative solutions enables more storeys to be achieved within the same building height.

This course will cover the basics of design, the benefits of choosing post-tensioning, sizing of post-tensioned elements and construction considerations. The course is designed for structural engineers with little or no experience in the design of post-tensioning.

Following this course delegates will:

  • Understand the benefits of PT construction. 
  • Gain knowledge of how to specify a PT project, to be designed and built by specialists.
  • Understand the build ability aspects of PT.
  • Understand the principles behind the design of PT.
