Factors influencing the deflection of PSC beams

The deflections of prestressed concrete members are influenced by the following salient factors:


FACTORS INFLUENCING DEFLECTIONS:

 

The deflections of prestressed concrete members are influenced byy the following salient factors:

 

        Imposed load and self weight

 

       Magnitude of the prestressing force

 

       Cable profile

 

       Second moment of area of cross section

 

       Modulus of elasticity of concrete

 

       Shrinkage, creep and relaxation of steel stress

 

       Span of the member

       Fixity conditions
