Part 2 – Design of Post-Tensioned Diaphragms

September 23, 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 2:

  • Diaphragm Design – Concrete Method Example
  • Comparison between Different Methods
  • Use of Precompression in Diaphragm Design
  • Collectors and use of Omega Factor
  • Detailing
  • Chord Design
