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.

Beam post-tensioning

The central hole passing axially through the plug will permit cement grout injected in it. The applications of such type of methods are different. The numbers of systems are available which are patented for the linear prestressing and with modifications to circular prestressing also.

Also, the other systems behave like the above principles and more specifically it is used for the precast beams. Such methods may be adopted at the site or on the ground and then it can be hoisted to the proper position. The spiral spring provides the means for appropriate clearance between the wires and therefore it provides the channel which is cement grouted afterward.

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.

There are other methods for post-tensioning system involving Magnel Blaton system, Gifford Udall system, P. 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. This arrangement opst give an additional restraint against the problem of slipping of the tendons. Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems.


Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut or released.

It is very necessary to measure the load applied with the help of jack arrangement and the extension of reinforcement so that the proper prestress in the reinforcement will be ensured. The anchorage system consists of a cylinder of good quality concrete and is provided with some corrugations on outside parts.

There are many ways to do the stretching of prestressing wires in the method freysssinet post-tensioning once the concrete is hardened. As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly.

Then the concrete is poured so that many structural elements can be produced in a single line and for that, the shuttering should be provided.

Such type of method consists tensining stretching the wires at greater distance apart.

While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical. Also in one line, the remaining wires will be cut off. The economical length of the concrete member should is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted.


Depending upon the situation and structural members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used. When 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.

Therefore additional reinforcement is provided in the member so that the local splitting and failure due to shear will be avoided. L standard system, Lee-Mccall tensionibg, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing. In other cases, there is the possibility of extension in some other part of the tendons which are overstressed.


This is the way to put space between the wires which will be filled with cement grout. 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.

The Hoyer system is generally used for the production on large scale of pre-tensioned structural element of the structure only. This has a central hole and is provided with heavy circumferential reinforcement. At the end of the member, the excessive bearing stresses are produced because of the anchoring devices which bear against the cracks. Therefore the prestressing force should be measured.


The following ways to do it: 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 different wedging devices and arrangement of wires are available in the different systems. It is further used to assists to transfer the reaction into the concrete.

When the curved cable is provided them the above-mentioned defects may be produced. There is considerable difficulty occurs in the transporting of concrete members of longer than 20 m length. 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.

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.
