Author(s): T.Y. Lin
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 257-268
Keywords: axial loads; bending; crack width and spacing; fatigue (materials); partial prestressing; performance; prestressed concrete; prestressing steels; reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; shear strength; structural design
Abstract:Historical development of reinforced, prestressed and partially prestressed concrete is reviewed. Methods and codes for design are discussed, with emphasis on strength and behavior requirements. The use of non-prestressed reinforcement for flexural members, members under combined shear and flexure, combined axial load and flexure are discussed, together with suggested approaches to their design and analysis.
