2018-11-1 The ACI Code maximum reinforce- ment limit for prestressed concrete is based on keeping the strain in the pre- stressing steel equal to or greater than the yield strain (see Ref. 12). Other as- sumptions implied in the ACI Code formulas for maximum reinforcement are: decompression steel strain = 0.00585 and e, = 0.003.

Get Price2018-11-1 The current provisions of Chapter 18 limit the moment strength of over-reinforced prestressed flexural sections to the compression portion of the moment couple while allowing a strength reduction factor of 0.9. Note that this approach is not rational and may limit the use of the full capacity of over-reinforced sections.

Get Price2018-11-1 For prestressed concrete, the three speciﬁcations deﬁne the maximum reinforcement limit in terms of different parame-ters; the AASHTO Standard Speciﬁcations control the maxi-mum amount of tensile reinforcement by placing a limit on the reinforcement index, ω.
