There are various ways of reinforcing the concrete. One amongst them is prestressing and post tensioning is just a form of prestressing. Although both the methods are used to reinforce the concrete to provide more strength to the materials, and hence to the buildings, there is very thin line between prestressing and post tensioning.
Post tensioning and its advantages
While in prestressing, steel is stressed first and concrete is poured afterwards, whereas, in post tensioning, the concrete is poured first and then the steel is stressed. Therefore, post tensioning is the process of strengthening the concrete or other construction materials with other high-strength steel strands referred to as tendons. It is method of inducing permanent stresses in a structure. Pre-stressing is generally done at the manufacturing facility.
There are many advantages of using post-tensioned concrete as recognized by the engineers and these advantages have been utilized time and again to build stronger structures. The main advantage of post tensioning is its flexibility of design. Low material cost, reduction in the amount of ground works required, and slabs with fewer expansion joints are just some of the advantages.
