Post Tension Concrete Seminar

The ACI Kuwait Chapter in association with CANAR trading & contracting company and OVM Post Tensioning systems organized a seminar on post Tension slabs design and advantages on the 1st of May 2011. This Seminar was held at the Palms Hotel in Bidaa and it was presented by Dr. Amr Ali Abdelrahman the Professor of Concrete Structures at the Ain shams University (Cairo, Egypt).

An introduction to the differences between pre-stressing and post stressing was outlined at the beginning of the seminar by the presenter. This was followed by a detailed presentation about the material properties in post tension slabs, the design and the different Construction Aspects and applications in the post tension systems.

Before ending the seminar the presenter had a chance to highlight the different advantages of the post tension systems by presenting 3 different live models that enabled the designers, contractors and structural engineers to see how this system added further value to their projects whether by allowing shallow structural depths, or bigger column-free spans, or less concrete, or reduction in the foundations loads, or even better deflection controls and better crack controls.
