Consulting, Detailing and Design
A comprehensive service for the design and implementation of post-tensioned systems.
DYWIDAG offers an array of engineering services for post-tensioned systems at all stages of design and construction. One of the key features of the service is the identification of suitable stressing systems for preliminary and construction design. DYWIDAG's team of experts will carefully evaluate the specific needs of the structure and determine the best type of stressing system to use. This ensures that the structure will be able to handle the necessary loads and stresses while maintaining its integrity and safety.
Another benefit of the service is the optimization of anchorage zones for preliminary and construction design. This involves determining the most effective placement and configuration of the anchorage zones to ensure optimal performance of the post-tensioned system. This can help to reduce costs and simplify the installation process.
In addition, DYWIDAG also provides CAD drawing blocks for anchorage areas and deviation zones of external tendons. These blocks can be easily integrated into design drawings, saving time and effort in the detailing process.
The service also includes the preparation of assembly drawings and stressing records. These are essential components of the design process and ensure that the post-tensioned system is properly installed and functioning as intended.
For building construction, our team can redesign flat slabs originally designed as reinforced concrete slabs into prestressed concrete slab systems with optimized slab thicknesses or larger spans between columns. We can also design flat slabs in accordance with EN 1992-1-1 and the applicable national annexes and prepare the associated formwork and reinforcement drawings, including reinforcement data. Stressing records can also be prepared if desired.
With DYWIDAG's expertise in detailing and design, clients can have peace of mind that their post-tensioned system is designed and installed correctly
