Paper Title:
Evaluation of Flexural Performance for Prestressed Concrete Beams with FRP Tendons
  Abstract

Prestressed concrete beams with vertically distributed FRP tendons possess some flexural performance obviously different from prestressed concrete beams with steel tendons. This paper provides a complete theoretical approach to analyze and evaluate the flexural behavior of prestressed concrete beams with FRP tendons. Calculation and analysis results show that a prestressed concrete beam with FRP tendons designed at balanced ratio reaches the maximum of its deformability. The increase of prestressing ratio and number of reinforcement layer will increase, respectively, its moment capacity but simultaneously decrease its deformability.
