SHEAR COMPONENT OF PRESTRESS BY EQUIVALENT LOADS

A design procedure is presented that uses the concept of equivalent loading to obtain the shear component of prestress. The prestressing tendons are replaced by a set of equivalent loads. the resulting shear diagram includes the effects of both the vertical component of the prestress and the induced reactions (if any). Several examples are presented to illustrate the method. The proposed procedure allows the designer to use familiar analysis techniques, reduce the tendium involved in shear design, and obtain a clear picture of the forces in the concrete. /Author/
