Strengthening of Structures using Internal Post-Tensioning System
In cases where a concrete structure in need of addressing concerns with strengthening due to deterioration, overloading, construction defects, or simply change of purpose, CTech-LLC®’sTensa-In™Internal Post-Tensioning System is an ideal, engineered solution.Tensa-In™ Internal PT system provides active reinforcement by placing the concrete structure under compression in those regions where load causes tensile stress.
Tensa-In™Internal PT system consists of high strength tendons (steel strands or bar) that are typically installed within a Strata Enlargement System™, or they may be installed into an existing member through core drilling or other methods and the anchorages needed at both ends of structural element.
After the tendons installation, the tendons stretch as they are tensioned with a jack and locked into place using an anchoring component, introducing compressive stress on the structural member, which offsets the tensile stress the concrete member might face under loading.
CTech-LLC® Tensa-In™Internal PT system has a well-earned reputation for its quality, reliability, and durabilityand issuitable for repair and strengthening works of buildings, bridges, tanks, silos, and special structures.
