The friction-loss calculations are important submittals for post-tensioning tendons. The calculations determine what the tendon’s final force is after short-term and long-term friction losses. The key input parameters for “Long-Term Losses” are as follows: Post-Tensioning System (Unbonded or Bonded) Type … Continue reading

Due to recent events in the Post-Tensioning industry, AMSYSCO has taken the initiative to develop a checklist to address corrosion of unbonded post-tensioning. The checklist relies on existing industry documentation. (Disclaimer(s): AMSYSCO, Inc. was not, or is, involved with the referenced project. This checklist … Continue reading
