Test and Design of Tensile-Compression Prestressed Concrete Beam
In this paper, the tensile-compression prestressed concrete beam was researched, and gets deflection of the beam subjected to load. Then, the beam was analyzed by the finite element method of ANSYS software. The test and analysis results show that the beam has a good flexibility and the phenomenon of stress concentration were appeared in ends concrete of pre-compressed steel tube. The pre-compressed steel tube control stress is 0.5 times the nominal value of steel tube, the concrete pre-tensile stress can be obtained effectively by relaxes pre-compressed steel tube. This paper further optimizes the dosage of pre-tensile tendon (Ap), pre-compressed steel tube (AT), tensile reinforcements (As)and compression reinforcements (A`s).The results from example show that the concrete structure of tensile-compression prestressed can reduce the pressure area height of the beam effectively and solving conventional prestressed concrete structure excessive or cannot reinforcement in pressure area.
