In this post, I will go over the third example in our structural prestressed concrete design course covering an introduction to structural prestressed concrete design. The goal of this example is to calculate the deflection of a pretensioned concrete beam with horizontal pretensioned steel tendons.   The problem statement states,   For the pretensioned rectangular…

In this post, I will go over the second example in our structural prestressed concrete design course covering an introduction to structural prestressed concrete design. The goal of this example is to calculate the design flexural strength of a prestressed concrete beam per ACI Code 318-11, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary.   The problem statement…

In this post, I will go over the first example in our structural prestressed concrete design course covering an introduction to structural prestressed concrete design. The goal of this example is to calculate the stresses for a simply supported beam subjected to dead loading, live loading, and compression due to pretension.   The problem statement…
