Precast pre tensioned and post tensioned concretes beams are commonly used now- a-days in construction. Significant number of bridge structures, buildings, theatres, auditoriums, etc. is being built with the use of precast girder due to their advantages such as a quick construction process, moderate cost and reduction of scaffolding and shuttering works. To avoid failures, precast structural members must be subjected to strict quality control that requires the use of none destructive testing method. This paper gives the brief idea about the post-tensioned and pre-tensioned technologies that are used in current trends.
