The theoretical basis and the main results of a design procedure, which attempts to provide the optimal layout of ordinary reinforcement in prestressed concrete.
Strictly speaking, Part 1 of EC2 is a draft of the full code.
However, it is unlikely that there will be any significant changes to Part 1 when the full code is finally published. Part 2 of EC2 will cover the design of prestressed concrete bridges.
The basic philosophy and nomenclature of Part 2 will be the same as Part 1. However, there will be some differences of detail, such as the requirements for the serviceability limit state. However, the ww w. Most of the applications of prestressed concrete in buildings are in the form of simply supported beams, and this is reflected in the many examples throughout the book.
Although some of these examples are of bridge decks, the subject of bridge design in general is beyond the scope of this book. Torsion of prestressed concrete members in buildings is rarely a problem and has not been covered here.
Information on both of the above topics may be found by reference to the Bibliography. The Bibliography also refers to other types of prestressed concrete structures, such as axial tension and compression members, storage tanks and pressure vessels. The calculations involved in prestressed concrete design are well suited to implementation by computer, with which most design offices are now equipped.
In recognition of this, examples of the designs of the two basic types of prestressed concrete members, namely cracked and uncracked, have been included in Chapter 13 in the form of computer spreadsheets. Listings are given for the formulas contained in each cell, and these can be adapted for use with most of the spreadsheet programs currently available.
An overall view of the behaviour of prestressed concrete structures is given in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 deals with material properties, while limit state design is outlined in Chapter 3. Since no restraint is provided against upward extension of the crack. At a relatively low load.
This force can be adjusted in magnitude. Design of Steel Structures Stress Control by Prestressing It would be more logical to apply the prestressing force near the bottom.
Design of Steel Structures The stress at bottom will be twice as compared to axial prestressing. The best arrangement for prestressing would be to produce counter moment. Design of Steel Structures Stress Control by Prestressing The transverse load produced moment that varies along the span from zero at the supports to maximum at the centre.
For each characteristic load arrangement. If the prestressing counter moment is made exactly equal and opposite to the moment from the loads. There will be no cracking and deflection in the member. This can be done by using varying eccentricity.
Design of Steel Structures Equivalent loads Shrinkage and creep in concrete also result in time-dependant losses. This always occurs in pretensioning.
There is small amount of slip at the achorages. Flag for inappropriate content. Related titles.

Sravanthi Mehar. Richard Lozada. Igor Gjorgjiev. Suman Saha. An axial compressive force P applied to the beam, as shown in Figure 1. The eccentric prestress induces an internal bending moment Pe which is opposite in sign to the moment caused by the external load.
An improvement in behaviour is obtained by using a variable eccentricity of prestress along the member.
This may be achieved using a draped cable profile. If the prestress countermoment Pe is equal and opposite to the load-induced moment all along the span, each cross-section is subjected only to axial compression, i.
No cracking can occur and, since the curvature on each section is zero, the beam does not deflect. This is the balanced load stage.
Consider the simply supported beam in Figure 1. The eccentricity of the cable is zero at each end and e at mid-span.
In Figure 1. At mid-span, the cable exerts an upward force R on the concrete. From statics, R equals the sum of the vertical component of the prestressing force in the tendon on both sides of the kink: 1. The beam is said to be self-stressed. No external reactions are induced at the supports. However, the beam suffers curvature and deflects upward owing to the internal bending moment caused by prestress. As illustrated in Figure 1.
If the prestressing cable has a curved profile, the cable exerts transverse forces on the concrete throughout its length. Consider the prestressed beam with the parabolic cable profile shown in Figure 1.
The shape of the parabolic cable is 1. Equation 1. The curvature xp is the angular change in direction of the cable per unit length, as illustrated in Figure 1. From the freebody diagram in Figure 1. This upward force is an equivalent distributed load along the member and, for a parabolic cable with the Figure 1. Page 9 Figure 1. A freebody diagram of the concrete beam showing the forces exerted by the cable is illustrated in Figure 1.
Once again, the beam is self-stressed. No external reactions are induced by the prestress. With the maximum eccentricity usually known, Equation 1. Under this balanced load, the beam suffers no curvature and is subjected only to the longitudinal compressive force P. This is the basis of a useful design approach sensibly known as load balancing. In addition, the properties of the gross concrete section are usually used in the calculations, provided the section is not cracked.
Indeed, these assumptions have already been made in the calculations for the introductory example in Section 1.
Concrete, however, does not behave in a linear-elastic manner. Linear-elastic calculations provide, at best, only an approximation of the state of stress on a concrete section immediately after the application of the load. Inelastic creep and shrinkage strains may cause a substantial redistribution of stresses with time, particularly on a section containing significant amounts of bonded reinforcement.
