Author(s): D.E. Branson
Publication: Symposium Paper
Appears on pages(s): 83-128
Keywords: beams (supports); camber; composite construction (concrete and steel); cracking (fracturing); curing; cyclic loads; deflection; deformation; flexural strength; loads (forces); partial prestressing; post-tensioning; prestress loss; prestressed concrete
Loss of prestress equations and examples using a modified step function method, the relaxation method, the AASHO method and the PCI Handbook method; and camber equations and examples using the step function approach recommended in previous ACI Committee 435 (7) and 209 (7) papers, are presented and compared for both noncomposite and composite prestressed flexural members.
