Title: Alternative P-Delta Method for Prestressed Members Subjected to Axial Load and Bending
Author(s): H. Scholz
Publication: Structural Journal
Appears on pages(s): 464-472
Keywords: axial loads; bending moments; columns (supports); elastic analysis; limit design method; prestressed concrete; stability; structural design; Design
Abstract:An alternative method for calculating the P-delta effect of prestressed members subjected to applied axial load and bending moments is introduced. The method is an extension of a recently proposed P-delta approach for sway structures designed to load and resistance factor principles. A number of examples are used to illustrate the new technique.
