POST-TENSIONED (PT) CONCRETE DESIGN COURSE


Course exploring the theory and practice of designing in post-tensioned (PT) concrete. Lifetime access to all modules and lessons including PDFs of presentation transcripts, technical design spreadsheets, technical design checklists, technical design how-to's, actual real structural drawings, technical short papers and books used by hundreds of practicing structural engineers. This is a crash course to gain knowledge from a group of practical engineers and theoreticians that have learned the techniques and best practices within the trade to conceptualize, scheme, analyze and design post-tensioned concrete in building structures. Drawing from these practical experiences, we have consolidated the wealth of information that is included in a field such as this so that you may find the shortest possible route to gaining the understanding of the art and science of post-tensioned (PT) building structural engineering and the tools necessary for your practice or your professional examinations.
