PARTIAL PRESTRESSING

Prestressing has a great influence on the behaviour of concrete structures under service loading, but little influence on the ultimate load. Methods of analysis are suggested for partially prestressed structures under service loading, where the method of superposition is not applicable. Partial prestressing with mixed reinforcement offers a number of advantages and is likely to be the most economical solution for medium-span structures. (Author) /TRRL/
