I am looking at an existing concrete building built in the 1920's. The new live load will be 100 psf. Floor system is conventional reinforced concrete. I am looking into methods for reinforcing the existing beams, the slab is ok. Does anyone have any advice on external post tensioning? Possibly suggested reading materials.
Thanks in advance for any help.
