Beam post-tensioning. With post-tensioned beams, we suggest the use of the C range system, because of the following characteristics: use of 13mm and 15mm. Freyssinet’s technical services design anchors, jacks and installation equipment, and also post-tensioning kits for prestressing of structures). ETA and CE. Freyssinet group has been active in the Middle east region since the early s, We supply and provide a comprehensive post tensioning system including.

By this method, the prestress is transferred to the concrete structure as there is bond between the tendons and concrete. At the end of the member, the excessive bearing stresses are produced because of poet anchoring devices which bear against the cracks. There are many ways to do the stretching of prestressing wires in the method of post-tensioning once the concrete is hardened.

Send freysslnet Civil Engineering related articles or files to info civilengineeringbible. Such methods may be adopted at the site or on the ground and then it can be hoisted to the proper position.

High tension steel wires of diameter varying from 5 mm to 8 mm about 12 numbers are properly arranged to form a group into a cable with a spiral spring inside.

Therefore the prestressing force should be measured. The economical length of the concrete member tensipning is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted. Therefore additional reinforcement is provided in the member so fressinet the local splitting and failure due to shear will be tensuoning. The method of prestressing involves pre-tensioning and post-tensioning methods only in the practical cases. These cylinders are then kept in proper position and then the conical plugs are being pushed into the conical holes after cables are properly tightened.


The spiral spring provides the means for appropriate clearance between the wires and therefore it provides the channel which is cement grouted afterward. The numbers of systems are available which are patented for the linear prestressing and with modifications to circular prestressing also.

Freyssinef the tendons are pulled and tightened with the help of jack arrangement against the end of concrete element then the required prestressing force is obtained suitably.

What is the difference between Hoyer system and Freyssinet system of Prestressing?

This thing is properly enclosed in the thin metal steel. It is further used to assists to transfer the reaction into the concrete. The central hole passing axially through the plug will permit cement grout injected in it.

The following ways to do it: L standard system, Lee-Mccall system, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing. There are other methods for post-tensioning system involving Magnel Blaton system, Gifford Udall system, P.

This is the way to put space between the wires which will be filled with cement grout. When the curved cable is provided them the above-mentioned defects may be produced. Also, the other systems behave like the above principles and more specifically it is used for the precast beams. It is very necessary to measure the load applied with the help of jack arrangement and the extension of reinforcement so that the teensioning prestress in the reinforcement will be ensured.

Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut freyssibet released. Depending upon the situation and structural members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used. While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical.

Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems. Once the wires are stretched then they are anchored in the stretched positions against the end of concrete member with the help of wedging device. The applications of such type of methods are tensioming.

Silo post-tensioning

The different wedging devices and arrangement of wires posf available in the different systems. To get a idea about the stretching of the steel it is necessary to do the extension measurements. As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly. The sides of ducts may obstruct the stretching of the reinforcement at the end remote from the jack arrangement while this part may not receive the full tension if properly not carried out.

The anchorage system consists of a cylinder of freysinet quality concrete and is provided with some corrugations on outside parts.

In the case of pre-tensioning method prestress, there is a compressive force in the concrete which is because of the bond between the concrete and steel wires and that is kept stretched between the buttresses. Such type of method consists of stretching the wires at greater distance apart. There is considerable difficulty occurs in the transporting of concrete members of longer than 20 m length. In the earlier days, pre-tensioning system was mostly used tensionign nowadays the post tensioning system is used.

From the above systems, it is clear that the systems for pre-tensioning prestressing are different from the system used for the post-tensioning systems. This arrangement will give an additional restraint against the problem of slipping of the tendons.

Also in one line, the remaining wires will be cut off.
