STAGE POST-TENSIONING--A VERSATILE AND ECONOMIC CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUE

The author, whose company has been a prime developer of stage post-tensioning, describes the mechanics and structural advantages of this new and powerful prestressing technique and discusses its application to several major high rise structures. Some of the structures include large girders (of minimum depth) over subways and supporting high rise buildings, girders in nuclear facilities, girder ties in buildings with sloping columns, and in the foundation of the world's tallest free-standing tower. It is concluded that stage post-tensioning will play an important role in the future growth of the prestressed concrete industry.
