Prestressing is an innovative and cost-effective method of enhancing the performance and strength of concrete structures. It has many uses and applications in the construction of buildings, bridges and water retaining structures. It can provide cost-effective gains and also more durable outcomes for concrete elements. This seminar will focus on the utilisation of prestressed concrete from three areas of relevance which cover design, construction and material applications.

Professor Gianluca Ranzi
Service behaviour of prestressed concrete
Prestressed concrete structures are widely used throughout the world. This presentation focuses on aspects related to the service behaviour of this form of construction with particular attention devoted to creep and shrinkage effects.

Mr. Albert Haddad
Advancements in grouting for post-tensioned concrete
This presentation will explain the key criteria and importance of a quality grout as part of a PT system, as well as some of the pitfalls in traditional grouting practices.

Mr. Miguel Barbara
An Innovative Solution for Temporary Movement Joints in Post-Tensioned Concrete Slabs
Temporary movement joints (TMJ) are a complex and common joint used in post-tensioned concrete slabs to relieve stresses from elastic pre-compression, shrinkage, creep and thermal effects. This presentation discusses current TMJ design challenges and offers an innovative solution that has been engineered to eliminate the issues associated with the grouted dowel sleeve and stainless connector options.
