A summary of an experimental investigation dealing with the effects of strand debonding on the flexure and shear behavior of simply supported pretensioned AASHTO beams with a cast-in-place composite slab is presented in this paper. The current ACI/AASHTO requirements for flexure and shear design of pretensioned girders are also evaluated.
