Title: Building Frames in Prestressed Concrete
Author(s): David P. Billington
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1065-1082
Keywords: no keywords
Abstract:Three important variables in the design of economical prestressed concrete building frames are: (1) tendon profile, (2) girder cross section, and (3) girder profile. The action of each variable on the effectiveness of the frame in carrying its load is considered. Types of frames considered are those in which (1) frame is post-tensioned, (2) girder only is prestressed, and (3) prestressing force is constant throughout girder length. Criteria are offered for selecting an efficient framing system for detailed frame analysis.
