Partially prestressed concrete construction uses prestressed, or a combina-tionof prestressed and nonprestressed, reinforcement. Partially prestressedconcrete falls between the limiting cases of conventionally reinforced concrete and fully prestressed concrete, which allows no flexural tension under service loads. When flexural tensile stresses and cracking are llowed under service loads, the prestressed members have historically been called partially prestressed. This report is presented as an overview for partial prestressing of concrete structures. Research findings and design applications are presented. Specific topics discussed include the history of partial prestressing, behavior of partially prestressed concrete members under static loads, time-dependent effects, fatigue, and the effects of cyclic loadings.
