Any Graduates here who know about Post-tensioning in construction? I need help?Watch this thread
I'm currently applying for a job, and they said I need relevant post-tensioning experience, i did a google search but do not completely understand it, could someone with some experience shed light on it for me please?
It has been around for a while and is very routine in other countries e.g. Australia, but is still seen as quite a niche thing to do in the UK. I'm not sure why this is, maybe because there were some high profile collapses of PT structures decades ago which put people off it and it hasn't quite recovered. It's getting more popular though (I think) for buildings, at least, the workmanship problems which it used to cause problems have now been resolved, also clients like it as it means less concrete, faster construction and longer spans which mean more flexible spaces.
TBH assuming you have studied whatever engineering degree is relevant to the role you're applying for, I'm surprised you haven't heard of it!
