Title: Axial Load-Moment-Curvature Characteristics of Prestressed Concrete Members
Author(s): Carl Berwanger and S. Imtiaz Rasul
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 289-307
Keywords: axial loads; beam-column frame; beams (supports); columns (supports); deflection; deformation; failure; limit design method; loads (forces); moment-curvature relationships; prestressed concrete; prestressing; prestressing steels; reinforced concrete
Abstract:Experimental and analytical investigations of fifty-five partially prestressed concrete beam-columns undergoing transverse flexure combined with axial thrust have been conducted. The tests were of short term duration. The variables were the number and the arragement of the prestressing tendons and the total prestressing force.
