Post tensioning concrete expert witnesses may be an invaluable resource for numerous lawsuits related to construction. Post tensioning is a type of pre-tensioning in which the concrete is placed under pressure and stressed before it is used in a structure. This process works by strengthening the concrete so it can withstand the stress it will be under in the final project. Post tensioning is done by positioning pre-stressed cables in plastic ducts or sleeves, which are then tightened after the concrete dries and before it is placed into the larger structure. Post tension concrete may provide valuable information for cases involving such issues as structural engineering, civil infrastructure, demolition, civil engineering, corrosion, materials, architecture, building envelope, foundation engineering, and other disciplines pertaining to construction.
Post tension construction is utilized for a wide range of construction projects. Post tensioning experts have often worked with bridges, fasteners, corrosion engineering, steel, metallurgical engineering, coatings, metals and alloys, and materials testing. Post tension concrete expert witnesses may be asked to offer a failure analysis, since problems with post tension concrete can result in structural failure, as well as other types of construction defects and damages, which would be cause for possible lawsuits. Construction projects utilizing post tension concrete must adhere to the proper construction codes and compliance.
