About the book

This book deals fundamentally with the basic philosophy, principles and the application of prestressing in structural elements. It also covers the detailed engineering of the structural elements with prestressing forces in terms of analysis and design. Different systems of prestressing, losses in prestressing and evaluation of capacity of prestressed concrete sections in flexure, shear and torsion, the force flow due to prestressing at anchorage zones, the time dependent effects due to creep and shrinkage of materials are explained. The design of prestressed concrete elements is covered with a holistic concept. In case of indeterminate structures, the effect of prestressing while satisfying the compatibility conditions has been clearly explained. The necessary philosophy and the design procedures of partially prestressed elements have been specifically dealt with. Accepted National and International Code provisions for design of prestressed concrete elements under the effect of the various loads have been elaborately discussed with worked out examples. New to the Second Edition: Table for the torsional rigidity of cross sections Effects of creep and shrinkage on indeterminate structures elaborated and a new article introduced in Chapter 11 Effects of time dependent deformation on indeterminate prestressed concrete structures elaborated Expressions from fundamentals derived and presented in Chapter 12 concrete sections in flexure, shear and torsion, the force flow due to prestressing at anchorage zones, the time dependent effects due to creep and shrinkage of materials are explained.
