English translation:pretensioned reinforcing tendons
Explanation:
Hi again,

Same sentence as your last question--'reinforcing' is probably enough, for armatura, but to be more specific, you can call it reinforcing tendons (more commonly called reinforcing bars or rebars). Note that I took the dash out of the word pretensioned this time around.

Concrete and masonry flooring system, consisting of prestressed concrete joists with pretensioned reinforcing, and lightweight flooring bricks.
