Abstract

Use of unbonded post-tensioning in concrete slabs in construction is widespread and used often in modern buildings. When designing these slabs, the designers use assumptions that are very simplified and not accurate when dealing with unbonded members. There is currently not sufficient data to fully understand and analyze the behavior of Unbonded Post-Tensioned Members (UPTM), including both beams and slabs. This project will further our understanding of UPTM and help us further understand friction forces and their effect on UPTM strength.
