Post-tensioning is a method of replacing reinforcing bars in concrete structures for increased strength and comprises of materials with high strength steel strands or bars, typically referred to as tendons.
Post-tensioning applications include office and apartment buildings, parking structures, slabs-on-ground, bridges, sports stadiums, rock and soil anchors, and water-tanks.
In many cases, post tensioning allows construction that would otherwise be impossible due to either site constraints or architectural requirements. There are post-tensioning applications in almost all facets of construction.
