Beam post-tensioning. With post-tensioned beams, we suggest the use of the C range system, because of the following characteristics: use of 13mm and 15mm. Freyssinet’s technical services design anchors, jacks and installation equipment, and also post-tensioning kits for prestressing of structures). ETA and CE. Freyssinet group has been active in the Middle east region since the early s, We supply and provide a comprehensive post tensioning system including.

This thing is properly enclosed in the thin metal steel. These cylinders are then kept in proper position and then the conical plugs are being pushed into the conical holes after cables are properly tightened. Also in one line, the remaining freeyssinet will be cut off. Such type of method consists of stretching the wires at greater distance apart.

The following ways to do it: The central hole passing axially through the plug will permit cement grout injected in freyxsinet. To get a idea about the stretching of the steel it is necessary to do the extension measurements. Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut or released.


The anchorage system consists of a cylinder of good quality concrete and is provided with some corrugations on outside parts.

The numbers of systems are available which are patented for the linear prestressing and with modifications to circular prestressing also. The economical length of the concrete member should is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted.

Therefore the prestressing force should be measured. In the earlier days, pre-tensioning system was mostly used but nowadays the post tensioning system is used. By this method, the prestress is transferred to the concrete structure as there is bond between the tendons and concrete. L standard system, Lee-Mccall system, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing.


Tnesioning different wedging devices and arrangement of wires are available in the different systems. The spiral spring provides the means for appropriate clearance between the wires and therefore it provides the channel which is cement grouted afterward. Therefore additional reinforcement is provided in the member so that the local splitting and failure due to shear will be avoided.

Feryssinet – Post-Tensioning

tensioninng The Hoyer system is generally used for the production on large scale of pre-tensioned structural element of the structure only. It is further used to assists to transfer the reaction into the concrete. Once the wires are stretched then they are anchored in the stretched positions against the end of concrete member with the help of wedging device. When ttensioning curved cable is provided them the above-mentioned defects may be produced. This is the way to put space between the wires which will be filled with cement grout.

When the tendons are pulled and tightened with the help of jack arrangement against the end of concrete element then the required prestressing force is obtained suitably. This has a central hole and is provided with heavy circumferential reinforcement.

In other cases, there is the possibility of extension in some other part of the tendons which are overstressed. Pozt arrangement will give an additional restraint against the problem of slipping of the tendons.


There are many ways to do the stretching of prestressing wires in the method of post-tensioning once the concrete is hardened.

It is very necessary to measure the load applied with the help of jack arrangement and the extension of reinforcement so that the proper prestress in the reinforcement freysssinet be ensured. From the above systems, it is clear that the systems for pre-tensioning prestressing are different from the system used for the post-tensioning systems. Then the concrete is poured so that many structural elements can be produced in a single line and for that, the shuttering should be provided.

Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems. The sides of ducts may obstruct the stretching of the reinforcement at the end remote from the jack arrangement while this part may not receive the full tension tensloning properly not carried out.

If the limited sizes of the concrete are to be produced as mass-production then this method is adopted economically. There is considerable difficulty occurs in the transporting of concrete members of longer than 20 m length. Depending upon the lost and treyssinet members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used. At the end of the member, the excessive bearing stresses are produced because of the anchoring devices which bear against the cracks.

As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly. While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical.
