oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Some aspects of prestressed concrete with particular reference to electrical transmission structures

Volume 4, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



The case for using prestressed reinforced concrete in the design of electric transmission masts and traction supporting structures is presented. A study is made of the component materials and emphasis is laid on the importance of the original water/cement ratio of the concrete used. Partly from theoretical considerations, but mainly from empirical data it is shown that only concrete obtained from a paste free from capillary water can eliminate the danger of the steel reinforcement corroding within the structure.
