With the publication of this technical report, VSLINTERNATIONAL LTD is pleased to make acontribution to the development of CivilEngineering.The research work carried out throughout theworld in the field of post-tensioned slabstructures and the associated practicalexperience have been reviewed and analysedin order to etablish the recommendations andguidelines set out in this report. The documentis intended primarily for design engineers,but we shall be very pleased if it is also of useto contractors and clients. Through our representatives we offer to interested partiesthroughout the world our assistance endsupport in the planning, design and constructionof posttensioned buildings in general and post-tensioned slabs in particular.I would like to thank the authors and all thosewho in some way have made a contribution tothe realization of this report for their excellentwork. My special thanks are due to Professor Dr B. Thürlimann of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) Zürich and his colleagues,who were good enough to reed through andcritically appraise the manuscript.Hans Georg Elsaesser Chairman of the Board and PresidentIf VSLINTERNATIONALLTDBerne, January 1985
