Design of Prestressed Concrete – Quiz and Interview Questions

Guidelines for Bridge Site Selection

In prestressed concrete, a prestress force is applied to a concrete member and this induces an axial compression that counteracts all, or part of, the tensile stresses set up in the member by applied loading.  In the field of bridge engineering, the introduction of prestressed concrete has aided the construction of long-span concrete bridges. These … Read more
