Top Strand Effect and Evaluation of Effective Prestress in Prestressed Concrete Beams

The first objective of this thesis was to assess the effect of casting orientation on bond strength in pretensioned prestressed concrete members. The "top strand effect" was evaluated through transfer and development length tests of prestressed concrete beams. Eight beams were cast with...
