Author(s): K. Cederwall, O. Hedman, and A. Loeberg
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 215-230
Keywords: beams (supports); building codes; cracking (fracturing); deformed reinforcement; loads (forces); partial prestressing; prestressed concrete; pretensioning; reinforcing steels; shear strength; shear tests; structural analysis
Abstract:In order to study the effect of prestress on the shear strength, shear tests have been made on a series of 33 beams. . .The results show that the shear strength is strongly affected by the prestress force. The results have been analysed according to three methods.
