Abstract

The design of pre-tensioned bridge beams can be very complex and often requires recent technological advances to be taken into account. The Elasto-magnetic (or magneto-elastic) method for measuring mechanical stress and thus force in the pre-stressing steel was used to determine the state of stress and the influence of different rheological phenomena on beam performance. Designed force values from computer
