Cable Stayed Bridges With Prestressed Concrete Fritz Leonhardt Prof. Dr. Ing. Consulting Engineer Stuttgart West Germany The number of cable stayed bridges with concrete or steel has increased dramatically during the last decade. Ref. 1 presents a survey of some cable stayed bridges that have been designed or built throughout the world.

The idea of prestressed concrete has been around since the latter decades of the 19th century, but its use was limited by the quality of the materials at the time. It took until the s and ‘30s for its materials development to progress to a level where prestressed concrete could be used with confidence.

The book also provides information on design of determinate structures and indeterminate structures (beams and frames) inclusive of cable profiling. It discusses special structures like pipes, water tanks, etc.

It is substantially "prestressed" during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service.: 3–5 This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in service.

Post-tensioned concrete is used for cast-in-place concrete and for bridges, large girders, floor slabs, shells, roofs, and pavements.

Prestressed concrete has experienced greatest growth in the field of commercial buildings. For buildings such as shopping centers, prestressed concrete is an ideal choice because it provides the span length.

Precast/prestressed concrete trusses were introduced in in the ACI Journal article titled “Prestressed Concrete Trusses”.

The paper deals with a square composite saddle-shaped cable roof 30 × 30 m in the plan, which is formed by two orthogonal cable groups joined with a compliant support contour.

The kinematic invariability of the roof is achieved by prestressing the cable net. From the viewpoint of material consumption, the cable roof has rational geometrical characteristics. A hybrid composite cable on the Cited by: 3.

Prestressed concrete is a method for overcoming concrete's natural weakness in tension. It can be used to produce beams, floors or bridges with a longer span than is practical with ordinary reinforced concrete.
