Prestressed Concrete

Introduction: Basic concepts of prestressing, terminology, advantages and applications of prestressed concrete.

Materials for Prestressed Concrete: High strength Concrete, permissible stresses in concrete, high strength steel, permissible stresses in steel.

Prestressing Systems: Prestensioning and post tensioning systems, various types of tensioning devices, Lec-Macall systems, Magnel Blaton post tensioning, Freyssinet systems, Gifford Udal system.

Losses of Prestress: Types of losses of prestress, loss due to elastic deformation of concrete, loss due to shrinkage of concrete, loss due to creep of concrete, loss due to relaxation of stress in steel, loss due to friction, loss due to anchorage slip, total loss in pretensioned and post tensioned members.

Analysis of Prestress and Bending stresses: Basic assumptions, resultant stresses at a section, concept of load balancing, cracking moment.

Deflections: Factors influencing deflections, short term deflections of un-cracked members, deflections of cracked members, prediction of long term deflections.

Shear and Torsional Resistance: Ultimate shear resistance of prestressed concrete members, prestressed concrete members in torsion, design of reinforcements for torsion, shear and bending.

Design of Flexural Members: Dimensioning of flexural members, design of pre-tensioned and post tensioned beams, design of partially prestressed members, design of one way and two way slabs, continuous beams.
