Title: Prestressed Concrete, Design Principles, and Reinforcing Units
Author(s): Herman Schorer
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 493-528
Abstract:Discusses the steel stress limitation in ordinary reinforced concrete design and shows how working stresses may be increased by the use of monolithic, prestressed concrete construction. It gives a descrip- tion of self-contained prestressed reinforcing units and points out the advantageous combination of high yield-point steel wire and high-early-strength concrete. A derivation of the elementary design principles is illustrated by examples. The theoretical conclusions are compared with some observations on prestressed prisms and test beams.
