    In order to study the effects of initial damages, CFRP reinforcement, and chloride corrosion on the flexural behavior of prestressed concrete beams, ten prestressed concrete beams were designed and manufactured, which were preloaded with 0%, 40%, and 60% of the ultimate load to crack. Then, part of the beams were reinforced by CFRP and immersed in chloride condition . Prestressed concrete is the most durable, reliable and strongest concrete that is widely used for the construction of mega buildings and bridges. It is a type of concrete in which high-strength tendons placed in tension regions of the cross-section are stressed during the construction of the element to act against tensile stresses generated due to […].

    diameter strands, concrete with higher compressive strength needed to be developed. The typical compressive strength of concrete used for prestressed beams in the ’s was between and MPa. Peterman and Carrasquillo (2) were able to produce high. with prestressed concrete than it can with ordinary reinforced concrete. Durability Since the entire section remains in compression, no cracking of the concrete can occur and hence there is little penetration of the cover. This greatly improves the long-term durability of structures, especially bridges and also means that concrete.

    In this paper, the requirements for minimum transverse reinforcement and maximum shear strength were evaluated for high-strength concrete. Four AASHTO Type I prestressed beams with concrete compressive strengths f to 15, psi (69 to MPa), and shear reinforcement ratios ρvfyv near the minimum ( psi [ MPa]) and maximum. Reinforced concrete (RC) (also called reinforced cement concrete or RCC) is a composite material in which concrete's relatively low tensile strength and ductility are counteracted by the inclusion of reinforcement having higher tensile strength or ductility. The reinforcement is usually, though not necessarily, steel reinforcing bars and is usually embedded passively in the concrete .

The tested beams are used to investigate the influence of concrete compressive strength, prestressing steel ratio and flange width on the behavior of partially prestressed beams. The experimentally observed behaviors of all beams were presented in terms of the cracking load, ultimate load, deflection, cracking behavior and failure : Shady H.

Salem, Khalid M. Hilal, Tarek K. Hassan, Ahmed S. Essawy. Prestressed Concrete covers the fundamentals of prestressing, systems of prestressing, losses, the ultimate strength of sections in flexure, shear and torsion, anchorage zone stresses, limit state concepts and holistic design of prestressed concrete elements.

The book also provides information on design of determinate structures and. The test results of this research contribute to better understanding experimentally the flexural behavior of prestressed concrete rectangular CFFT beams.

Besides, the research will lay the foundation for future studies on the structural behavior of prestressed CFFT beams. Experimental work Material propertiesAuthor: Asmaa Abdeldaim Ahmed, Mohamed Hassan, Mohamed Hassan, Radhouane Masmoudi.

Beams 4 and 5 were strengthened to have a higher stress range of MPa (36 ksi). For all the strengthened beams, the failure mode observed was FRP rupture. The results favorably qualify the application of FRP strengthening to increase the live load of concrete beams prestressed with straight by: This report is the fifth in a series describing a study which is being conducted to develop information on the durability of prestressed (pretensioned and posttensioned) concrete beams.

This report describes tests and observations on two beams that had been exposed to severe weathering for 16 years in a flexurally loaded condition at the Treat. An Analytical Approach towards the Strength of Concrete Beams Reinforced and/or Prestressed with FRP Bars.

Behavior of CFRP-Prestressed Concrete Beams Under High-Cycle Fatigue at Low Temperature. sponse of concrete beams prestressed with CFRP and AFRP tendons and concluded that the use of CFRP as transverse reinforcement increased the ductility of the beams.

Iwamoto et al suggested that the flexural behavior and ultimate strength of prestressed FRP concrete could be estimated by a conventional prestressed concrete analy-sis. In this article, Ian Godson outlines the growing risk of corrosion caused deterioration to prestressed concrete elements and summarizes the investigation, repair and long term durability options for prestressed structures.

The use of Prestressed Concrete for construction of bridge, wharf and othe. 1. Introduction. In general, the behavior of beams with FRP reinforcement under shear loading is similar to the behavior of steel reinforced concrete heless, the use of FRP as shear and longitudinal reinforcements affects the shear capacity due to the different mechanical properties, such as the lower modulus of elasticity and the linear-elastic behavior.

After a brief review of the ductility and deformability indices currently used in the design of concrete beams reinforced or prestressed with steel or fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) tendons, a new definition of a deformability index (factor) for prestressed concrete beams is proposed.

Subject topics: Economics of prestressed concrete Subject layout: A prestressed member, when compared with an equivalent reinforced concrete member, requires less concrete, and about 1/5 to 1/3 of.

experiments were conducted with 12 beams divided into two groups: beams with the same ultimate failure strength, and those with the same working strength.

the superiority of the prestressed beams in several strength categories is described, and the implications for design are discussed.

In this research, series of static tests were carried out to investigate the behavior of full-scale SPPRC beams with different types of epoxy-glued joint configurations. The paper presents the results of flexural and shear tests up to failure on full-scale hollow-core slabs (HCS) having a depth of mm.

A detailed non-linear 2D finite element model is also developed to predict the stress distribution and crack pattern within the slabs, providing a well match with experimental results.
