PARTIAL PRESTRESSING--PHILOSOPHY AND APPROACH

Historical development of reinforced, prestressed and partially prestressed concrete is reviewed. Methods and codes for design are discussed, with emphasis on strength and behavior requirements. The use of non-prestressed reinforcement for flexural members, members under combined shear and flexure, combined axial load and flexure are discussed, together with suggested approaches to their design and analysis. /Author/
