member shear and moment
Member Shear and Moment
  • Shear and moments on members can be found using statics methods and beam tables from Chapter 11
strength design
Strength Design
  • Strength design is based using the rectangular stress block
  • The stress in the prestressing steel at nominal strength, fps, can be determined by strain compatibility or by an approximate empirical equation
  • For elements with compression reinforcement, the nominal strength can be calculated by assuming that the compression reinforcement yields. Then verified.
  • The designer will normally choose a section and reinforcement and then determine if it meets the basic design strength requirement:
concrete stress distribution
Concrete Stress Distribution
  • Parabolic distribution
  • Equivalent rectangular distribution
