STUDY OF MOMENT REDISTRIBUTION IN PRESTRESSED CONCRETE BEAMS. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by S.M.R. Lopes, J. Harrop, and A.E. Gamble, published in this journal (Volume 123, Number 5, May 1997), is presented. The discussers outline some of their work on redistribution of moment, maintaining that the extent of redistribution moment attained before failure of a continuous prestressed concrete beam reduces with increase in span-to-depth ratio and is higher for concentrated load than for uniformly distributed load. They suggest that the influences of such factors be considered when defining the range of the bending moment diagram factor. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
