Effects of Pre-Release Cracks in High-Strength Prestressed Girders

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  09/01/2000


This research project investigated the effects of these pre-released cracks on girder camber, flexural cracking capacity, and steel stress ranges. The study concluded that steel fatigue in the prestressing strand is a concern in girders that become cracked in service.
