The focus of this course is to learn the basic concepts, materials and design methods for prestressed concrete construction including pre-tensioned and post-tensioned elements. Determine prestress losses and carry out flexural, shear and torsional design of prestressed elements. Analyze and design indeterminate prestressed concrete structures. Design of a two-way prestresses slab and plate systems and post-tensioned flat-plate floor systems. There is no other course in the existing curriculum that offers an opportunity to our students to focus on pre-stressed and post-tensioning concepts.
