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.

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. When the curved cable is provided them the above-mentioned defects may be produced. 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. Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems.
As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly.
While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical. There are other methods for post-tensioning system involving Magnel Frejssinet system, Gifford Udall system, P.
Such methods may be adopted at the site or on the ground and then it can be hoisted to the proper position. It is very necessary to measure the load applied with the help of jack arrangement and the extension of reinforcement so that the proper frdyssinet in the reinforcement will be ensured. The economical length of the concrete member should is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted.
To get a idea about the stretching of the steel it is necessary to do the extension measurements. It is further used to assists to transfer the reaction into the concrete. Depending upon the situation and structural members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used.
When the tendons are pulled and tightened with the help of jack arrangement against the end of concrete element then the required prestressing force is obtained suitably. Such type of method consists of stretching the wires at greater distance apart. This arrangement will give an additional restraint against the problem of slipping of the tendons. Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut or released.
Also in one line, the remaining wires will be cut off. The different wedging devices and arrangement of wires are available in the different systems. This thing is properly enclosed in the thin metal steel.
This has a central hole and is provided with heavy circumferential reinforcement. Therefore additional reinforcement is provided in the member so that the local splitting and failure due to shear will be avoided.
The spiral spring provides the means for tensikning clearance between the wires and therefore it provides the channel which is cement grouted afterward. The Hoyer system is generally used for the production on large scale of pre-tensioned structural element of the structure only. The anchorage system consists of a cylinder of good quality concrete and is provided with some corrugations on outside parts. In other cases, there is the possibility of extension in some other part of the tendons which are overstressed.
Feryssinet – Post-Tensioning
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.
In the earlier days, pre-tensioning system was mostly used but nowadays the post tensioning system is used.
Therefore the prestressing force should be measured. This is the way to put space between the wires which will be filled with cement grout. The applications of such type of methods are different.
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. There is considerable difficulty occurs in the transporting of concrete members of longer than 20 m length.
The central hole passing axially through the plug will permit cement grout injected in it.
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. By this freysainet, the prestress is transferred to the concrete structure as there is bond between the tendons and concrete. L standard system, Lee-Mccall system, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing.
Also, the other systems behave like the above principles and more specifically it is used for the precast beams. In the case of pre-tensioning method prestress, there is a compressive force in the concrete which is because of the bond between tensionimg concrete and steel wires and that is kept stretched between the buttresses.
