This report provides a guide to the work accomplished in the course of an extensive research project on the use of prestressed concrete for highway bridges. The project was active over the period 1951-1969. It covered various topics related to flexural strength, shear strength, time-dependent deformations, anchorage-zone stresses, and bond characteristics of prestressed concrete beams. The scope of the analytical and experimental investigations in each area is outlined. The report also contains a list of references where complete information on different phases of the investigation can be found.
