SESSION 4: SURVEYS OF RESEARCH ON PRESTRESSED CONCRETE - TRIAXIALLY PRESTRESSED MEMBERS

THE AUTHOR OUTLINES HOW, IN TRIAXIALLY PRESTRESSED STRUCTURES, BOTH STRAIN AND STRESS MAY BE ADJUSTED IN THE MOST ADVANTAGEOUS WAY BY USING MEMBERS WITH HIGH MATERIAL COMPRESSIBILITY AND RESTRAINING MOVEMENT BY ARTIFICIAL METHODS OF DEFORMATION CONTROL. THE USE OF SPIRALLY PRESTRESSED MEMBERS IN STRUCTURES, EITHER AS PROPER UNITS OR AS A REINFORCEMENT FOR COMPOSITE UNITS, IS FULLY DISCUSSED AND MANY EXAMPLES OF BOTH BIAXIAL AND TRIAXIAL PRESTRESSING ARE DESCRIBED AND EXAMINED. /AUTHOR/
