From the PTI Post-Tensioning Institute Web Site
In 2006, as part of its biennial design awards competition, PTI introduced a new competition for college students, this year in a brand new category. Student submissions must be something built by a student or group of students within the last five years. Built projects must incorporate post-tensioning strands that prestress a building component, and may be in the form of a sculpture or other scale model.
To date participation has been limited to a few universities; however, PTI is encouraging students from other accredited North American universities and colleges to submit entries for awards and recognition.
The 2008 Student Project award was presented to Tylor Middlestadt, Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, CA for his project entitled "The Post-Tensioned Concrete Advantage: Experimental Study of the Impact of Concrete Compressive Strength on the Strength and Serviceability of a Post-Tensioned Concrete Slab."
Tylor Middlestadt graduated spring 2008 and was awarded for his senior project fall 2008.
