LOSS OF PRESTRESS, CAMBER AND DEFLECTION OF NON-COMPOSITE AND COMPOSITE PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES

GENERAL EQUATIONS ARE PRESENTED FOR PREDICTING LOSS OF PRESTRESS AND CAMBER OF BOTH COMPOSITE AND NON- COMPOSITE PRESTRESSED CONCRETE STRUCTURES. CONTINUOUS TIME FUNCTINS OF ALL PARAMETERS NEEDED TO SOLVE THE EQUATIONS ARE GIVEN, AND SAMPLE RESULTS INCLUDED. COMPUTED PRESTRESS LOSS AND CAMBER ARE COMPARED WITH EXPERIMENTAL DATA FOR NORMAL WEIGHT AND LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE. METHODS ARE ALSO PRESENTED FOR PREDICTING THE EFFECT OF NON-PRESTRESSED TENSION STEEL IN REDUCING TIME-DEPENDENT LOSS OF PRESTRESS AND CAMBER, AND FOR THE DETERMINATION OF SHORT-TIME DEFLECTIONS OF UNCRACKED AND CRACKED PRESTRESSED MEMBERS. COMPARISONS WITH EXPERIMENTAL RESULTS ARE INDICATED FOR THESE PARTIALLY PRESTRESSED METHODS. /PCIJ/
