Fundamentals of prestressed concrete design

Five broad areas important to prestressed concrete design are covered. First, the properties of the two basic materials - concrete and steel, are discussed, emphasizing the physical properties that affect prestressed concrete. Second, the two primary design considerations, flexure and shear, are explored. Third, typical design examples with respect to buildings and bridges are discussed. Fourth, the salient features of the prominent guiding documents and codes are illustrated and discussed throughout the text. Fifth, general considerations and factors affecting the design of prestressed concrete such as connections and tolerances, are presented.
