The Post-tensioning (61) component enables Tekla Structures to accurately model most post-tensioning profiles and attributes. Use the tabs in the component dialog box to load a previously saved PT (post-tensioning) tendonreinforcement that represents reinforcing bars, strands, or wires that are used to produce a compressive stress in prestressed concrete
Besides the actual reinforcing bars, strands, or wires, tendons may comprise an anchorage.
Tendons can be prestressing or post-tensioning tendons. Prestressing tendons are used in prestressed reinforcement.
scheme, or a new tendon scheme.
Use the following tabs in the Post-tensioning (61) dialog box to define the properties of the objects that this component creates:
Tendon size, Grade, Number of tendons, Spacing between tendons, Rotation angle, Grouted system.
