THIS REPORT DISCUSSES SOME OF THE CONCEPTS USED IN THE PROPORTIONING OF PRESTRESSED STEEL STRUCTURES: THE ALLOWABLE STRESS PROCEDURE, THE CONCEPT OF MODIFIED ALLOWABLE STRESSES, FRITZ'S APPROACH, WHICH IS ANOTHER FORM OF THE MODIFIED ALLOWABLE STRESSES CONCEPT, THE LOAD FACTOR CONCEPT, AND THE LIMIT STATES CONCEPT. DETAILS ARE GIVEN OF THE LIMIT STATES CONCEPT WHICH USED STATISTICAL AND PROBABILISTIC METHODS TO CALCULATE THE EFFECTS OF LOADING AND PRESTRESSING ON A STRUCTURE. TABLES CONTAIN FORMULAE FOR USE IN CHECKING THE STATE OF STRESS ON PRESTRESSED STEEL STRUCTURES; NO ACCOUNT IS TAKEN HERE OF THE STATE OF DEFORMATION. THE CONCEPT OF LIMIT STATES IS RECOMMENDED AS THE BEST AVAILABLE METHOD FOR THE DESIGN OF PRESTRESSED STEEL STRUCTURES. /TRRL/
