ESF is highly qualified and perfectly positioned to provide the necessary design assistance from our design division which comprises of well dedicated and experienced structural engineers and draftspersons. To maximize the utilization of the post tensioning system it is mandatory for the structural design engineers to have thorough knowledge of this field of engineering in combination of various code provisions and the efficient renowned softwares. With familiarity of various codes (ACI, BS, EURO, etc..) and hands on experience with state of the art softwares such as Etabs, Adapt, Ram Concept, SAFE, etc, ESFPT design division is capable of handling projects of any volume with the design team working towards achieving architecturally viable, optimal economy and secure structural solutions.
The post tensioned slabs can be designed as banded, distributed or combination of both. The various combinations have been shown below
The post tensioned slabs are usually flat slabs without and projects from the soffit of slab. In certain cases where the spans are large, instead of placing heavy mass of concrete in terms of thicker slabs, more economy can be achieved by utilization any one of the drop panels, band beams, waffle slab or ribbed slabs as shown below.
