SECTION PARTIALLY PRESTRESSED - AN EXACT SOLUTION

A simplified method for analyzing partially prestressed concrete section is presented. Cardan's formula is applied to find an exact solution of the third degree equation. The results are expressed in the form of formulas, which can be used effectively with hand-held, non-programmable calculators. A flowchart and a simple computer program are also presented. Using a design example, derived numerical results are compared with existing iterative methods.
