Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Structural Design, Analysis and Testing


A rational analysis procedure for the calculation of tendon forces in prestressed beams with unbonded tendons is discussed. The prestressing tendon is analyzed as a tight-string which carries a portion of the external load. Further development of the method is in progress.
