Abstract / Description of output

A discussion is given of the development of post-tensioned brickwork beams and their ultimate load behavior under short term loading. The brickwork section was specially designed for ease of construction and grouting of tendons. The span of the post-tension beams varied from 1. 5 m to 6. 3 m. A method for the calculation of the ultimate moment is also outlined.
