Metro Testing + Engineering’s scope of service for a typical post tension concrete slab or beam of concrete includes observation and review of material handling and storage and assisting with the flow of Post Tensioning information and compatibility for all materials. It also includes a pre-pour visit to ensure appropriate post tension tendon placement and pour monitoring to ensure protection of the post tension tendons during concrete placement.
Metro’s services also include determination of in-situ concrete strength prior to stressing and strand pull force and corresponding elongation during stressing. Monitoring tendon end capping and patching after the stressing operation is also performed before a final Post Tension Summary Report is issued.
