To introduce the fundamental mechanics of prestressing and its applications to concrete structural elements. Calculate prestress losses due to several sources.Determine the cross section stresses in prestressed concrete flexural members under a given loading. Determine the strand number and layout as well as the level of prestress in a flexural member to resist a given loading with a specific cross section.

Determine whether a given prestressed concrete member has sufficient shear capacity to resist a given loading.

As a summary;

Introduction to prestressing, prestress losses, flexural analysis and design, composite construction, shear, torsion, deflections.
