Optimum Use of Pretensioning, Post-Tensioning, and Two-Way Prestressing
The historical nature of the development of new materials in engineered construction has always marked the beginning of new concepts in design, renewed trends, and improved techniques...

Snap-Buckling of Shallow Prestressed Arches
An analysis is presented of the effect of an initial horizontal thrust on the buckling and post-buckling behavior of a shallow, circular, elastic arch with fixed ends. Loading by a uniform...

Analysis and Design of Struts with Tension Ties
A general solution is obtained for determining the buckling load of struts with tension ties. The ties, extending in length from one to the other end of the strut and bearing on several...
