Abstract

This research program was funded by the Texas Department of Transportation ∥TxDOT∥ to determine the cause of flexural cracking of prestressed beams at release. Girders that exhibited cracking were 54-inches deep, relatively short in length ∥60-feet and less∥, and contained highly eccentric strand configurations.
