Abstract: Methods for the assessment of the reliability and redundancy of post-tensioned trusses are suggested. The effect of tendon layout on the reliability and redundancy of post-tensioned trusses is investigated. Post-tensioning enlarges the elastic range, increases fatigue resistance, redundancy, reliability, and reduces deflection and member stresses.
