A 2-day programme organized by the
Faculty of Civil Engineering of
Warsaw University of Technology

Course Overview

This course provides the know-how and tools for efficient and economical design of post-tensioned structures. It presents the latest developments in construction technology, code provisions, design procedures, and software tools.

After a brief introduction to current post-tensioning systems and construction practice, the course continues with the economics of both grouted and unbonded post-tensioning systems, and covers the practical design concepts and design procedures for beams, one-way and column supported two-way flat slab construction. Each step is supplemented with well-documented literature, examples, and computer simulations.

The course continues with the state-of-the-art methods for graphical modelling of structures for analysis and design of floor systems, including the efficient use of AutoCad drawings, Revit Structure® and ADAPT's model generation tools in bringing BIM within reach of everyday consulting work. It presents an integrated and seamless process for generating structural calculations, post-tensioning and reinforcement drawings, shop (fabrication) drawings and the estimate of quantities.

The course demonstrates an integrated workflow for detailed design of post-tensioned floor systems, foundations, vertical elements, and the overall global design of a building for gravity and lateral loads. The course also covers short and long-term deflections, cracking, temperature loads, crack mitigation schemes, and vibration evaluation and control.

Special Book Offer:
All delegates registered in the course will receive a signed copy of Dr. Bijan's new book as part of registration fee.

The software workshop covers the efficient integration of analysis results obtained from third party software, for the overall stability of a structure under wind and earthquake with the gravity design using ADAPT software system.

At this course, participants will:
  • Review current post-tensioning systems and construction practice in building structures
  • Learn the practical step by step procedure of post-tensioning design
  • Design of post-tensioned floors for wind and earthquake forces
  • Evaluation and acceptability of post-tensioned floors for vibrations
  • Design post-tensioned slabs for temperature loads
  • Cracking; immediate and long-term deflections
  • Examine the economic advantages of post-tensioning
  • Become familiar with structural modeling of post-tensioned buildings and design, using ADAPT 2D and 3D FEM software, AutoCAD and Revit Structure
At the hands-on computer workshop, participants will:
  • Obtain a hands-on experience and exposure to efficient design of post-tensioned buildings using ADAPT software
  • Become closely familiar with the latest design software and methods
