Secondary moments in prestressed beams with FEA

Secondary (or hyperstatic) bending moments occur in prestressed beams that are continuous over internal supports, or have other redundant support conditions. Any eccentric prestress force will cause a beam to deflect, and if these deflections are restrained at internal supports, … Continue reading
