Document Type: Journal Paper

Abstract: Design procedure for simply supported steel beams making possible utilization of statically indeterminate composite action and favorable initial stress distribution to strengthen available beam sections; variation of Queen Post truss with pretensioned tie rod is studied and weight savings of over 30% demonstrated by example design; techniques based entirely on elastic considerations.
