                GRIMES, Administrative Patent Judge.                                                          


                                         DECISION ON APPEAL                                                   
                      This is an appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 involving claims to a                           
                post-tensioning system for concrete structures.  The Examiner has rejected                    
                the claims as anticipated and obvious.  We have jurisdiction under 35 U.S.C.                  
                 6(b).  We reverse the anticipation rejection, vacate the appealed                           
                obviousness rejections, and enter new obviousness rejections under 37                         
                C.F.R.  41.50(b).
