$. A beam of symmetrical I-section spanning 8 m has a flange width of 250 mm and a flange thickness of
80 mm respectively. The overall depth of the beam is 450 mm. Thickness of web is 80 mm. The beam
is pre-stressed by a parabolic cable with an eccentricity of 150 mm at the centre of the span and zero
at supports. The live load on the beam is 25 kN/m.
a) Determine the effective force in the cable for balancing the dead and live loads on the deam.
b) Sketch the distribution of resultant stress at the centre-of-span section for the above case.
c) Calculate the shift of the pressure line from tendon-centre-line.
10. A post-tensioned prestressed concrete beam of 30 m span is subjected to a prestressing force of 2500
kN at 28 days strength. The profile of the cable is parabolic with maximum eccentricity of 200 mm at
midspan. Determine losses of prestress and the jacking force required if jacking is done from both ends
of the beam. The beam has a cross-section of 500 mm 800 mm and is prestressed with 9 cables, each
cable consisting of 12 wires of 5 mm diameter. Take E
= 2.1 10
and E
= 3.510

Assume one cable is tensioned at a time.

11. A pre-stressed concrete beam of I section is used for a simply supported beam of 12 m span. The
section of the beam is shown in fig. Calculate the maximum uniformly distributer = d load that the beam
can safely carry. Also calculate the pre-stressing force and eccentricity of the pre-stressing load. Assume
losses of pre-stress is 20%. Allowable compressive stress in concrete at transfer and during service
condition are 18 N / mm2 and 14 N / mm2 respectively and that is tension bending zero at each case.
