The concept of prestressed concreteis also not new. In
1886 a patent was granted for tightening steel tie rods in
1886

a patent was granted for tightening steel tie rods in
concrete blocks. This is analogous to modern day
segmental constructions

.
Early attempts were not very successful due to low
strength of steel at that time Since we cannot prestress

Since we cannot prestress
at high stress level, the prestress losses due to creep and
shrinkage of concrete quickly reduce the effectiveness of

In Pretension, the tendons are tensioned against some
abutments

After the
concrete hardened, the tension force is released. The
tendon tries to shrink back to the initial length but the
tendon tries to shrink back to the initial length but the

regular reinforcing steel. Thus, it is something between
full prestressed concrete (PC) and reinforced
concrete (RC). The goal is to allow some tension and
cracking under full service load while ensuring
sufficient ultimate strength.
We sometimes use partially prestressed concrete
(PPC) to control camber and deflection, increase
(PPC) to control camber and deflection, increase
ductility, and save costs.

Cohesion is the chemical bonding of the two materials. It depends
on the cohesion factor

and the contact area. The

reater the

area, the larger the cohesion force.
Friction is due to the roughness of the surface. It depends on the
friction factor or coefficient of friction (μ)and the normal force
(N). To increase friction, we either make the surface rougher
