Optimum Design of Unbonded Prestressed Tendons in Circular Pool Wall
Using the Equivalent Load Method of unbonded prestressed tendons reinforcement in cylindrical shell, and the concepts of influencing factors of pool wall boundary conditions for hydraulic or annular prestressed reinforcement, the way of unbounded prestressed tenons optimizing location is discussed. It is emphasized that the number of tenons in pool top wall is more than that of in pool bottom wall , and the optimum reinforcement ratio is only 1/3 ~ 1/4 of actual design reinforcement ratio.
