## EXAMPLE NZS 3101-06 PT-SL-001

Post-Tensioned Slab Design

PROBLEM DESCRIPTION
The purpose of this example is to verify the slab stresses and the required area of
mild steel strength reinforcing for a post-tensioned slab.

A one-way simply supported slab is modeled in SAFE. The modeled slab is 254
mm thick by 915 mm wide and spans 9754 mm as, shown in shown in Figure 1.

A 254 mm wide design strip is centered along the length of the slab and has been
defined as an A-Strip. B-strips have been placed at each end of the span,
perpendicular to Strip-A (the B-Strips are necessary to define the tendon profile).
A tendon with two strands, each having an area of 99 mm2, has been added to the
post-tensioning forces are as follows:

The total factored strip moments, required area of mild steel reinforcement, and
slab stresses are reported at the midspan of the slab. Independent hand calculations
were compared with the SAFE results and summarized for verification and
validation of the SAFE results.

## TECHNICAL FEATURES OF SAFE TESTED

¾ Calculation of the required flexural reinforcement
¾ Check of slab stresses due to the application of dead, live, and post-tensioning
