Post Tensioned Analysis & Design Spreadsheet

Post Tensioned Analysis & Design Spreadsheet

 Post-tensioning tendons, which are prestressing steel cables inside plastic ducts or sleeves, are positioned in the forms before the concrete is placed. Afterward, once the concrete has gained strength but before the service loads are applied, the cables are pulled tight, or tensioned, and anchored against the outer edges of the concrete.

Post-tensioning is a form of prestressing. Prestressing simply means that the steel is stressed (pulled or tensioned) before the concrete has to support the service loads. Most precast, prestressed concrete is actually pre-tensioned-the steel is pulled before the concrete is poured. Post-tensioned concrete means that the concrete is poured and then the tension is applied-but it is still stressed before the loads are applied so it is still prestressed.

This spreadsheet provides the user with a fundamental understanding of post-tensioned concrete design to enable the use of a spreadsheet program. The program provides for the ultimate strength and service stress design and analysis of one-way beam and slab and two-way flat plate systems.
