About this event

In recent years, external post-tensioning technology has been revolutionized to a point where it is commonly considered as the most cost effective, durable, and low impact strengthening and retrofitting solution for civil and industrial concrete structures.

External post-tensioning as a strengthening and retrofitting technique has many benefits and applications such as increasing live load capacity, fixing crack issues and structural deficiencies, increasing span length and deck width.

This presentation will review the learnings from the various bridge types strengthened and with a particular focus on challenging technical aspects of the structural strengthening. Also discussed will be a range of other applications of post tensioning systems, providing ideas on how Australian engineers and clients can benefit from the technology on bridges and extend the life potential of each structure.

Please arrive for 5:30pm for a start at 6pm.
