Description
Concrete is the most widely used building material in the world. In addition to understanding concrete, today’s construction professional needs to understand the principles of concrete reinforcing and how prestressed concrete works. This includes both pre-tensioned concrete that is typically manufactured in a precast plant, and post-tensioned concrete that is cast-in-place. Post-tensioned concrete is being used more and more throughout the world to build multi-story structures, slabs-on-ground, and bridges, while precast prestressed concrete continues to be used in rapidly built structures like parking garages. Understanding how and why reinforcing and prestressing works in a concrete structure.
Gain a better understanding of the principle and theory behind concrete reinforcing and prestressing to help you be a better construction management professional.
