Paper Abstract

Post tensioning work on the Kellogg Flyover Project included top deck and pier diaphragm transverse post tensioning cables. Also included were draped and negative moment area longitudinal post tensioning cables. My observations during inspecting this work raised questions in my mind regarding possible improvements in the operation which would be possible if enhancements in equipment and/or materials were available. In this paper, I will describe areas in which improved equipment and/or materials would have saved time and money in constructing the project. I will also briefly discuss where nondestructive testing might be helpful in assessing the long term performance of the structures post tensioning system.
