This report provides information for the design of flexural concrete members in buildings post-tensioned with single-strand unbonded tendons. The report is intended to complement the commentary in ACI 318 and to provide suggestions for revisions and additions to ACI 318. Consideration is given to design for gravity and lateral loads, determination of fire endurance, design for seismic forces, and design for catastrophic loadings. Recommendations concerning details and properties of tendons, protection against corrosion, and construction procedures are presented.
Keywords: concrete slabs; cracking; fire resistance; joints; punching shear; unbonded post-tensioning
