Reinforcement through Post-Tensioned Concrete
Post tensioning is simply a technique that is used to reinforce concrete. Though it looks just like traditional reinforced concrete, post-tensioned concrete is reinforced through more highly “activated” methods, meaning that the supports inside of concrete actively maintain more tension and give the concrete added strength and durability. To apply post-tensioning to concrete, post-tensioning tendons are inserted before the concrete is poured. The tendons, comprised of plastic sleeves with steel cables inside, are pulled so they are taught and anchored against the outer edges of the concrete to reinforce the structure. Once dried, they are ready for weight-bearing construction.
Pre-stressing the steel tendons is also part of the process of post-tensioning concrete. This method is intended to pull or tension the steel cables before the concrete is put in place to support weight-bearing loads. Most post-tensioned concrete includes steel inserts that were pre-stressed before the concrete was cast. Tension to the tendons is applied after the concrete is poured but before the concrete is cured and used to support a heavy load in its final structural location.
