Dear Students
One of the tutors has already uploaded the design of lateral stability systems that covers the concept
design based on AS3600-2009. The following example demonstrates how to design the lateral stability
system using simplified method (as des

SUMMARY
This paper outlines the major advantages of the use of post-tensioning in
building structures. Economics of the post-tensioning slab system are
discussed inclu

Practical Prestress Detailing

This presentation will only cover bonded post-tensioning, because Structural Systems do not clai

There are two components to the applied prestrcss: the
direct axial compression in the concrete section
transferred through the tendon anchorage, and the
upward force from the tendon profile. If the slab is
restrained when the slab is stressed, force may
