Prestressed concrete - Wikipedia

Prestressed concrete is a form of concrete used in construction. It is substantially "prestressed" during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service.: 3-5 This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in service.

Assessment of Cores Using Electroacoustic Methods

The paper focuses on the assessment of structures using the methods described in the new edition of the ČSN EN 1371 standard. An experiment will be conducted on cores taken from reinforced concrete columns under compressive loading up to the ultimate resistance. The concrete used to make the column should correspond to old concrete used in the second half of the 20th century.

1. Introduction. The use of precast concrete components offers numerous advantages over conventional cast-in-place (CIP) construction methods, including but not limited to reduced on-site construction time, improved product quality, safer work-zone for the traveling public, and decreased environmental impacts .These benefits motivate the bridge industry to employ precast components as much as
