Part 1 – Design of Post-Tensioned Diaphragms

September 21, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

The webinar will cover the design of post-tensioned diaphragms highlighting the benefits of precompression to reduce or eliminate additional drag and chord reinforcement. A discussion of how concrete diaphragms should be model will be presented and how a traditional steel or wood diaphragm approach does not apply to a concrete membrane. Construction photographs and details will be shown to clarify the design intent.

Part 1:

  • Diaphragm Forces
  • Diaphragm Analysis – Different Approaches
  • Moment and Shear Diagrams
  • Diaphragm Design – Two Methods Used – Wood versus Concrete
  • “Wood” Design Example
