Effects of prestress on strains and deflections in pretensioned beams

In this research, nonlinear structural analysis along with finite element analysis were carried out for a pretensioned concrete beam at different levels of pretension in order to examine the effect of the change in the tendon force on the geometric stiffness of the beam. Several results were obtaine...
