What is a structure ?

A structure means a system of connected parts used to support a load. An elastic body is called a structure when a set of loads are applied the elastic body

Losses in Prestressed concrete

The effective prestress in concrete undergoes a gradual reduction with time from the stage of transfer due to various causes. This is called losses in prestressing. Types of Losses Pre

Prestressing methods

Prestressed concrete is used in a wide range of building and civil structures where its improved performance can allow for longer spans, reduced structural thickness, and materials saving compared with

IS Specifications for prestressed concrete

The code of practice for prestressed concrete is IS:1343-1980. In this post some of the very important specifications which one should keep in mind before going for design of prestressed

Materials used for Prestressed concrete

Prestressed concrete is used in a wide range of building and civil structures where its improved performance can allow for longer spans, reduced structural thickness, and materials saving compared with

Design procedure for column with Biaxial moments

A column is a special case of a compression member that is vertical. A reinforced concrete column is basically a vertical structural member, which helps to transfer the load from

Longitudinal bars detailing of a column section

Longitudinal reinforcement is provided in column to carry the applied axial load and bending moment along with concrete. Minimum longitudinal reinforcement It should be at least 0.8 percent of the
