This module allows modelling and analysis of prestressed and post-tensioned concrete structures.
Prestressing module makes it possible to define geometry, material, and other properties of prestressed and post-tensioned internal tendons. Free tendons are not currently supported.
The tendons input is made in three steps:
- Bore hole pattern is defined, i.e., the location of holes in the "face-plate" is defined.
- Sectional strand pattern is specified, i.e., which holes of the "face-plate" are "filled" with a strand/wire/bar.
- Beam strand pattern is input, which means that the shape of the strands/wires/bars along the 1D member is defined.
