Prestressed Concrete Box girder transported from Yard to Site

Limitations of Reinforced Concrete without Prestressing Dead loads, imposed loads, deformations and load-independent effects such as temperature changes and shrinkage induces tensile forces in a RC beam. Since the tensile strength of concrete is low steel reinforcement bars are embedded in the concrete to carry all internal tensile forces. Prestressed concrete is an advanced form … Read more 5 Reasons Why Prestressed Concrete is Required | Advantages of PSC

What are the advantages of Prestressed Concrete over Conventional Reinforced Concrete. The prestressing of concrete has several advantages as compared to traditional reinforced concrete without prestressing. A fully prestressed concrete member is usually subjected to compression during service life. This rectifies several deficiencies of concrete. Serviceability and Strength Reduces occurrence of cracks . Freezing & … Read more What are the advantages of Prestressed Concrete over Conventional Reinforced Concrete?
