Post-Tensioned Transfer Plates


Pretressing Systems

7-wire strand prestressing system – since 1954

Ultimate Tensile Strength,  GUTS = 1770 N/mm2 / 1860  N/mm2

Multi-strand  post-tensioning system

Multi-strand anchor head with wedges

Pre-Tensioning vs. Post-Tensioning

 Design Advantages

  • Shallow structural depth
  • Bigger column-free spans
  • Less concrete
  • Reduction in foundation loads
  • Better deflection control
  • Better crack control

Design Considerations

  • Flexural & punching shear
  • Lateral stiffness
  • Vertical deformation
  • Differential settlement
  • Construction Sequence

Construction Advantages

  • Thinner plate
  • Less reinforcement/congestion
  • Layered construction
  • Lighter supporting falsework
  • Faster construction
