Beam post-tensioning. With post-tensioned beams, we suggest the use of the C range system, because of the following characteristics: use of 13mm and 15mm. Freyssinet’s technical services design anchors, jacks and installation equipment, and also post-tensioning kits for prestressing of structures). ETA and CE. Freyssinet group has been active in the Middle east region since the early s, We supply and provide a comprehensive post tensioning system including.

What is the difference between Hoyer system and Freyssinet system of Prestressing?

Therefore additional reinforcement is provided in the member so that the local splitting and failure due to shear will be avoided.

The numbers of systems are available which are patented for the linear prestressing and with modifications to circular prestressing also. The applications of such hensioning of methods are different.

In the case of pre-tensioning method prestress, there is a compressive freyssine in the concrete which is because of the bond between the concrete and steel wires and that is kept stretched between the buttresses.

The different wedging devices and arrangement of wires are available in the different systems.

Tensionng type of method consists of stretching the wires at greater distance apart. As the transporting bigger products and handling them is practically impossible and very costly. Therefore the prestressing fryssinet should be measured. The spiral spring provides the means for appropriate clearance between the wires and therefore it provides the channel which is cement grouted afterward. To get a idea about the stretching of the steel it is necessary to do the extension measurements.

This is the way to put space between the wires which will be filled with cement grout. In the earlier days, pre-tensioning system was mostly used but nowadays the post tensioning system is used.

If the limited sizes of the concrete are to be produced as mass-production then this method is adopted economically. Depending upon the situation and structural members the prestressing systems are appropriately decided and used.

The economical length of the concrete member should is up to 20 m if such type of prestressing is adopted. Once the wires are stretched then they are anchored in the stretched positions against the end of concrete member with the help of wedging device.

These cylinders are then kept in proper position and then the conical plugs are being pushed posg the conical holes after cables are properly tightened. This has a central hole and is provided with heavy circumferential reinforcement.

In other cases, there is the possibility of extension in some other part of the tendons which freysssinet overstressed. Such methods freyesinet be adopted at the site or on frsyssinet ground and then it can be hoisted to the proper position.

It is very necessary to measure the load applied with the help of jack arrangement and the extension of reinforcement so that the proper prestress in the reinforcement will be ensured.

At the end of the member, the excessive bearing stresses are freyssint because of the anchoring devices which bear against the cracks. Then the concrete is poured so that many structural elements can be produced in a single line and for that, the shuttering should be provided.

Once the concrete hardens then the wires are cut or released. Among the post-tesnionig system, Freyssinet stem is introduced firstly of all other systems. By this method, the prestress is transferred to the concrete structure as there is bond between the tendons and concrete.


When the tendons are pulled and tightened with the help of jack arrangement against the end of concrete element then the required prestressing force is obtained suitably.

Silo post-tensioning

While for larger span the pre-tensioning system is found to be uneconomical. From the above systems, it is clear that the systems for pre-tensioning prestressing are different from the system used for the post-tensioning systems. The following ways to do it: The method of prestressing involves pre-tensioning and post-tensioning methods only in the practical cases.

There are other methods for post-tensioning system involving Magnel Blaton system, Gifford Udall system, P. The central hole passing axially through the plug will permit cement grout injected in it.

When the curved cable is provided them the above-mentioned defects may be produced. The Hoyer system is generally used for the production on large scale of pre-tensioned structural element of the structure only. Also in one line, the remaining wires will be cut off. The sides of ducts may obstruct the stretching of the reinforcement at the end remote from the jack arrangement while this part may not receive the full tension if properly not carried out.

This arrangement will give an additional restraint against the problem of slipping of the tendons. L standard system, Lee-Mccall system, electrical prestressing and chemical prestressing.
