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.
