September 21, 2017 Breakfast Meeting - Repairs & Rehabilitation of Post Tensioned Structures

Fly ash is widely accepted as a cost-effective strategy for improving the durability and sustainability of concrete. Recently, fly ash users in some parts of the country have encountered shortages of this valued material. This presentation will address factors affecting near term ash supply, describe changes occurring in the electric utility sector that produces fly ash, and provide a long-term outlook for fly ash availability in the United States. Because of the technical and safety precautions required in repairing highly-stressed post tension tendons, knowledge of proper repair techniques is critical to maintaining the integrity and safety of the structure, and those around it. STRUCTURAL’s approach to repairing post-tensioning tendons in buildings, water containment structures, bridges, and dams recognizes these needs and includes a holistic view of the structure’s behavior—combined with understanding the root cause of the post-tensioning challenge.
