May 17, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
There is a myth that if a post-tensioning strand is broken, it has the potential to fly out of the building, create havoc and destruction as it soars over state lines and are almost impossible to repair. As most myths are, this one is completely wrong. The majority of post-tensioned buildings will have a strand or two break during their lifetime and that rarely creates a financial or a performance issue. The webinar will cover the typical repair options and numerical solutions that are available to structural engineers when a post-tensioning strands is damaged. Construction photographs, inspection reports and real building examples will highlight the various options that can and have been successfully used.
