## Stress increments in prestressed concrete beams

The two main Australian Standards covering prestressed concrete structures (AS 3600, Concrete Structures, and AS 5100 Part 5, Concrete Bridges) put a limit on the allowable increase in stress in reinforcement and prestressing strands and tendons, when the load increases from … Continue reading
