Abstract:
The use of self-stressing types of concretes is limited to applications requiring only a low level of prestress. Each application of a self-stressing type of concrete to fabrication of structural elements or building units requires a careful investigation, not only of the properties of the concrete but also of the structural behaviors of the precast units. To date, this self-stressing type of concrete has been used in only a few structural applications.
