Abstract:
A method is presented for constructing a diagram for determining satisfactory cable profiles for prestressed concrete beams in which compressive stress is critical only at the section of maximum moment. A second method is presented for satisfying all conditions imposed by permissible stress, tensile and compressive, in a beam of varying depth and in a continuous beam.
