Thesis Topic/Title
Behaviour of Structural Rehabilitation Using External Post-Tensioning

Description

Strengthening of existing structures such as bridges, buildings and other infrastructure has become an important issue for the civil and structural engineers. External post-tensioning is considered as one of the most appropriate techniques for strengthening and rehabilitation of the existing structures. It is important to understand the behaviour of structural rehabilitation using external post-tensioning, so that the rehabilitation could be optimised and cost could be reduced. This research project will include experimental and analytical investigation of structures strengthened by external post tensioning. A comparison of existing design models and prediction equations will also be made. The outcome of this study can enhance the understanding of the behaviour of externally post-tensioned structures and develop appropriate design methodology for structural rehabilitation.
