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.

Also in one line, the remaining wires will be cut off.

The following ways to freyssinwt it: Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut or released. If the limited sizes of the concrete are to be produced as mass-production then this method is adopted economically.

The numbers of systems are available which are patented for the linear prestressing and with modifications to circular prestressing also. It is further used to assists to transfer the reaction into the concrete.

This has a central hole and is provided with heavy circumferential reinforcement.

When the 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. Such type of method consists of stretching the wires at greater distance apart. At the end of the member, the excessive bearing stresses are produced because of the anchoring devices which bear against the cracks.

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.


L standard system, Lee-Mccall system, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing.

By this method, the prestress is transferred to the concrete structure as there is bond between the tendons and concrete. There is considerable difficulty occurs in the transporting of concrete members of longer than 20 m length.

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. The anchorage system consists of a cylinder of good quality concrete and is provided with some corrugations on outside parts. There are other methods for post-tensioning system involving Magnel Blaton system, Gifford Udall system, P. 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.

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

The applications of such type of methods are different.

The Hoyer system is generally used for the production on large scale of pre-tensioned structural element of the structure only. 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. To get a idea about the stretching of the steel it is necessary to do the extension measurements. Also, the other systems behave like the above principles and more specifically it is used for the precast beams.


What is the difference between Hoyer system and Freyssinet system of Prestressing?

The different wedging devices and arrangement of wires are available in posr different systems. While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical.

From the freyssinet systems, it is clear that the systems for pre-tensioning prestressing are different from the system used for the post-tensioning systems. In other cases, there is the possibility of extension in some other part of the tendons which are overstressed. Depending upon the situation and structural members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used.

As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly. There are many ways to do the stretching of prestressing wires in the method of post-tensioning once the concrete is hardened.

The economical length of the concrete member should is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted. In the earlier days, pre-tensioning system was mostly used but nowadays the post tensioning system is used. Such methods may be adopted at the site or on the ground and then it can be hoisted to the proper position. Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems.
