Concrete via bond. 19.1.2 post-tensioning in post-tensioning, the concrete member is first cast with one or more post -tensioning ducts or tubes for future insertion of tendons. once the concrete is sufficiently strong, the tendons are stressed by jacking against the concrete. when the desired prestress level is reached, the
As stated in the policy manual, txdot bridge design manual - lrfd, limit concrete strength at time of release of prestressing tension, fci, to a maximum of 6.0 ksi. design concrete strength, fc, is limited to a maximum of 8.50 ksi. the following links are provided for additional reading on asr

Full beam design example cee 3150 reinforced concrete design fall 2003 design the exural including cutoffs and shear reinforcement for a typical interior span of a six span continuous beam with center-to-center spacing of 20 ft. assume the supports are 12 inches wide.
Example 2 design of continuous beam a post-tensioned concrete rectangular beam consists of two 10 m spans. it is 300 mm wide and 600 mm deep. permanent action of 25 knm including self-weight and a variable action of 15 knm. cover requirements mean that center of tendon should be no closer than 100 mm from surface of concrete.
Jan 04, 2018nbsp018332post tensioned simply supported prestressed concrete pc i-girder bridges are widely used bridge system for short to medium span 20m to 50m highway bridges due to its moderate self weight, structural efficiency, ease of fabrication, low maintenance etc.
Since concrete is weak in tension in normal reinforced concrete construction cracks develop in the tension zone at working loads and therefore all concrete in tension is ignored in design. prestressing involves inducing compressive stresses in the zone which will tend to
Support everyday concrete bridges of all types, including precast and cast-in-place, reinforced, pre-tensioned, and post-tensioned. support multiple design codes, including us aashto lrfd and lfd, canadian chbdc, and indian irc working stress and limit states design.
This example illustrates the design of a two span cast-in-place post-tensioned concrete box girder bridge. the bridge has spans of 118 feet and 130 feet. the bridge has zero skew. standard adot 42-inch f-shape barriers will be used resulting in a bridge configuration of
Post-tensioned single-cell concrete box girders of variable depth are used in continuous bridges to achieve both economy and aesthetics. in this paper, the minimum prestressing for a given two- or three-span continuous bridge deck profile is achieved through a constrained optimization procedure using linear programming in conjunction with gradient method of optimization.
This example illustrates the design of a precast posttensioned girder for composite action in a highway bridge. figure 1 - girder layout source lin, t.y., amp burns, n.h. 1981.
Analysis and design of post-tensioned pre-stressed concrete t -beam bridge deck. 3. methodology segmental construction employs precast segments cast of highest quality concrete, in sizes which can be transported and erected. the segments are usually reinforced with mild steel and are designed to be connected by post-tensioning after erection.
For general design philosophy and analysis of post-tensioned concrete, the reader should refer to pdhonline course s127 general overview of post-tensioned concrete design. course content. this spreadsheet program provides for the design and analysis of post-tensioned concrete one-way beam and slab systems and two-way flat plate slab systems.

Post-tensioned superstructures, which can be built quickly and without touching the land or water below the bridge, are a relatively low impact structural system and optimal solution. for longer spans commonly up to 300-feet or more, shallower girder depths, and continuously curved superstructures, post-tensioning offers ductility and seismic ...
Post-tensioned in this method, the concrete has already set but has ducts cast into it. the strands or tendons are fed through the ducts stage 1 then tensioned stage 2 and then anchored to the concrete stage 3 the anchorages to post-tensioned members must distribute a large load to the concrete, and must resist bursting forces as a result.

Reinforced and prestressed concrete are used extensively in bridge projects. in addition to general design guidance and information on detailing practices, this section contains three design examples a three-span reinforced concrete slab superstructure, a 63 inch pretensioned i-beam, and a three-span post-tensioned concrete slab superstructure.
Prestressed and post-tensioned concrete introduction - chapter 12 part 2 date 31oct2018 sheet 1 of 2 file no. 12.00-1 introduction it is the intent of this chapter to establish the practices and specific requirements of the structure and bridge division for the design and detailing of prestressed and post-tensioned concrete members.
Because post-tensioning was limited to smaller beams and slabs, the alternate method of pretensioning became the industry standard after the early years. figure 3 - this is a detail from the original 1957 engineering plan for the post-tensioned slab design for bridge 9065, originally located on highway 61 just south of winona, but now replaced.
