Presents a tool for the design of prestressed concrete members. A series of mathematical derivations are presented showing the step by step procedure from given loads and stresses to the corresponding resulting cross section. This section is subsequently checked for compliance with the ultimate load requirements. A desian program and adesign example are discussion of its oract ica aoolication. given with a short A long series of modifications to the presented designis possible using the same set of equations free and independently variable section maintained. as long as properties
