Abstract:
Fully prestressed, partially prestressed, and conventionally reinforced concrete beams of the same size and virtually the same ultimate capacity were loaded to failure. Deflections and strain were measured during a storage periood of approximately 4 months. Loads, deflections, strains, and maximum crack widths were measured during testing. The wide range of behavior of reinforced concrete (the limits of which are represented by fullly prestressed and conventionally reinforced concrete) that may be obtained by varying the prestressing force is illustrated.
