FINAL REPORT. Currently, there is a serious problem in the United States and elsewhere with the deterioration of concrete bridges due to corrosion induced by chloride intrusion into the concrete. Nonetheless, as a specialist in the design and construction of post-tensioned concrete building structures for 50 years I feel qualified to submit a review.

I will keep it as objective as I can:). This book is destined to become the definitive work on the design of post-tensioned concrete buildings for many decades to /5(11).

This study was part of the Long-Term Bridge Performance Program. Abstract: A significant proportion of the U.S. bridge inventory is based on bonded post-tensioned (PT) concrete construction. An important aspect of maintaining corrosion protection of these PT systems is assuring that tendon ducts are properly grouted with an acceptable material.

Post-tensioned concrete haunched slabs standards will extend the span range capabilities of the shallow-depth slabs from 20 m (66 ft) to 28 m (92 ft), in addition to providing a high performance type bridge superstructure.

General Design. The slab bottom (soffit) has a parabolic profile with minimum depth at mid-span and maximum depth at pier. Members of the Institute include major post-tensioning material fabricators in the U.S., Canada and Mexico, and manufacturers of prestressing materials in the U.S., Canada, Mexico, Asia and Europe, and companies supplying materials, services and equipment used in post-tensioned construction.

Management of bridge assets requires a life-cycle approach that balances design and construction of new bridges, and maintenance of existing bridge stock. There has been a growing need for inspection, maintenance, repair, and strengthening of existing bridge structures due to aging transportation infrastructure.
