oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Least area design of non-composite prestressed concrete beams

Volume 8, Issue 11
  • ISSN : 1021-2000



In this paper it is shown that by writing the equations for the extreme fibre stresses and the concrete cover requirement in dimensionless form the problem of selecting the design which gives the least area or section, for a beam of given depth, reduces to one of solving five equations for five unknowns.
