fibUK evening lecture: Prestressed and Post-Tensioned concrete: History, theory and practice

This evening event is organised by the UK Group of fib (The International Federation for Structural Concrete).

Three expert speakers will discuss relatively unknown explicit equations of prestress and design and construction aspects of post-tensioned slabs in high rise buildings. There will also be an opportunity to network with peers and experts in structural concrete.
