1 SECTION 5 ANALYSIS OF CONTINUOUS SPANS DEVELOPED BY THE PTI EDC-130 EDUCATION COMMITTEE LEAD AUTHOR: BRYAN ALLRED
2 NOTE: MOMENT DIAGRAM CONVENTION In PT design, it is preferable to draw moment diagrams to the tensile face of the concrete section. The tensile face indicates what portion of the beam requires reinforcing for strength. When moment is drawn on the tension side, the diagram matches the general drape of the tendons. The tendons change their vertical location in the beam to follow the tensile moment diagram. Strands are at the top of the beam over the support and near the bottom at mid span. For convenience, the following slides contain moment diagrams drawn on both the tensile and compressive face, denoted by (T) and (C), in the lower left hand corner. Please delete the slides to suit the presenter's convention.

8 TYPICAL TWO SPAN BEAM The beam elevation above is what is typically used in design offices to identify the number of strands and their location along the beam. The tendon profile shown is what is typically seen in the field. The curvature of the tendons will reverse near the girders and the exterior columns. To simplify the math, a simple parabola will be assumed between the columns and the girder at grid B.
9 TYPICAL TWO SPAN BEAM W/ SIMPLE PARABOLIC PROFILE
10 DEAD AND LIVE LOAD W DL = ksf * 18 = 1.73 kips/foot W LL = ksf * 18 = 0.72 kips/foot W TL = 2.45 kips/foot
11 T SECTION PROPERTIES ACI B eff : Width of slab effective for beam design/analysis Lesser of: 1) L (beam span) /4 = 60 *12 / 4 = 180 t = Slab thickness in inches 2) 16*t + b w = (16*5 )+16 = 96 (Controls) 3) One half the clear distance to the next web = (18 *12) 16 = 200 b w = Beam width For simplicity we will use 16 inches for the full depth of the beam
12 T SECTION BEAM SECTION PROPERTIES For simplicity, the beam is assumed to be a constant 16 wide A = (96 *5 ) + (30 *16 ) = 960 in 2 CG t = ((96 *5 *2.5 ) + (30 *16 *20 )) / 960 in 2 = (from top) I = b*h 3 /12 + A*d 2 (Parallel Axis) = (96 *5 3 /12) + (96 *5 *( ) 2 )+ (16 *30 3 /12) + (30 *16 *( ) 2 ) = 110,500 in 4 S T = 110,500/11.25 = 9,822.2 in 3 S B = 110,500/23.75 = 4,652.6 in 3
13 SIMPLIFIED BEAM MODEL For simplicity of analysis, the exterior columns and interior girder will be assumed to pin/roller support. Step 1 Determine balanced loads from the posttensioning force and its drape.
14 BALANCED LOAD Since the tendon is draped (not flat) between the supports, once stressing begins, it will want to straighten out to have no curvature between grids A to B and B to C. As it straightens it will push upward on the beam. For a given force, the larger the a dimension, the more upward force is generated as it tries to straighten.
15 BALANCE LOAD The straightening out of the strand will push upwards on the concrete section. This upward force is called the balance load and is active resistance for the life of the structure. Post-tensioning is the only reinforcing that pushes back on the structure. This is the primary benefit of post-tensioning and why post-tensioning can save money by using smaller sections and less reinforcing steel. Steel, wood, masonry and metal studs are all passive systems that react to applied load. If you don t drape the strands, you are missing the main benefit of post-tensioning!!
16 CALCULATE THE BALANCE LOAD W EQ = (8*F E *a) / L 2 a = ( )/2-4 = 23.5 W EQ = (8*293 K *23.5 /12) / 60 2 = 1.28 kips/foot (each span) % Conc S.W. = 1.28/1.64 = 0.74 (74%) - The force and profile of the strands removes 74% of the concrete self weight from stress and deflection equations. This is why posttensioning engineers drape the strands!
17 BALANCE LOAD 1. Balance loads are compared to the self weight of the concrete section since only the concrete will be present during stressing. 2. Stressing of the tendons typically occurs 3 to 4 days after placing the concrete so there are no superimposed loads. 3. The percent balanced load is typically between 65 to 100% of the concrete self weight. 4. Our profile is balancing 74% of the self weight so this layout is in the acceptable range. 5. Balance loads do not need to satisfy any code sections but they are a useful indicator of efficient designs. 6. Having a balanced load significantly greater than 100% of the concrete self weight can lead to cracking, blow outs or upward cambers. Balancing more than 100% should be done with caution.
18 BEAM MODEL W/ EQUIVALENT LOADS The beam model shows all loads on the beam. The tendons have been replaced with the load they impart on the beam which is the axial force of the strands and the balance load. Note: If the balance loads are not opposite of the dead and live load, your drape is wrong and you are not resisting load!
19 BEAM MODEL W/ NET LOADS The net load is generated by subtracting the balance load from the dead and live load. The direct force from the anchors is applied at the center of gravity of the section to eliminate any end moments.
20 BEAM MODEL W/ NET LOADS The net loading will be used to determine the flexural stresses at the critical locations along the span of the beam. The net loading is NOT used in ultimate strength design. Balance loads are only used to satisfy the allowable stress requirements of the building code. The net loading is NOT used in determining column or footing loads. Post-Tensioning does not reduce the total weight of the structure.
21 MOMENT AT GRID B Each span has equal loading and equal spans. With the pin support assumption, the moment at grid B is W*L 2 /8 per beam theory. M B = (1.17 * 60 2 )/ 8 = 527 Ft*Kips With different spans, support conditions, or loading, an indeterminate structural analysis (moment distribution, computer program, etc.) would be required.
22 NET SUPPORT REACTIONS M A = -1.17*60 2 / R BA * 60 = 0 R BA = 43.9 Kips (Not to be used in column design) M B = 1.17*60 2 / R A * 60 = 0 R A = 26.3 Kips (Not to be used in column design) Check F Y : 1.17*60 = 70.2 & = 70.2 OK
23 CALCULATE MID SPAN MOMENT Net Shear Diagram M AB = 26.3 K *22.5 / 2 = Ft*Kips M BA = 527 K 43.9 K *( ) / 2 = Ft*Kips OK Mid Span Moment = 296 Ft*Kips
24 NET SERVICE MOMENT DIAGRAM (T) Always draw moment diagrams to the tensile face of the concrete section. The tensile face indicates what portion of the beam requires reinforcing for strength. Note the diagram matches the general drape of the tendons. The tendons change their vertical location in the beam to follow the tensile moment diagram. Strands are at the top of the beam over the support and near the bottom at mid span.

27 WHAT IF WE DIDN T DRAPE THE TENDONS?? Without draping the strands, there would be no balance load to offset the dead and live load. Only the axial compression would be available to reduce the tensile stresses. Placing the strands at the center of gravity of the section would require additional rebar at the locations of high flexural demands.
28 WHAT IF WE DIDN T DRAPE THE TENDONS?? With no balance load, the total load is the total dead and live load which is 2.45 kips per foot. With the pin support assumption, the moment at Grid B is W*L 2 /8 per beam theory. M B = (2.45 * 60 2 )/ 8 = 1, Ft*Kips Note this would be the same moment if you were designing wood, steel, rebar only concrete, etc.
29 WHAT IF WE DIDN T DRAPE THE TENDONS?? Grid B: σ B = P/A +/- M/S σ Btop = (293 / 960) (1,103*12) / = ksi (Tension) σ Bbot = (293 / 960) + (1,103*12) / = 3.15 ksi (Comp) For no increase in cost, draping the strands reduced the flexural stresses from ksi to ksi which is a reduction of (1.042/.339) 3.07 times. This is why post-tensioning engineers drape the tendons!!!
30 SECONDARY MOMENTS M u = 1.2*M DL + 1.6*M LL + 1.0*M 2 (ACI ) M DL = Dead load Moment M LL = Live Load Moment M 2 = Secondary Moment caused by draped post-tensioning in an indeterminate system. Secondary moments do not apply to typical precast sections since the tendons are not draped, there are no uniform balanced loads. In addition, most precast sections are simply supported (determinate) elements which do not create secondary forces. Balanced loads and indeterminacy are required for secondary affects.
31 SECONDARY MOMENTS CONCEPT To explain the concept of secondary moments, lets assume the concrete beam is weightless but stiff enough to restrain the tendons. The tendons are the only force on the section and pushing the beam upward.
32 SECONDARY MOMENTS IDEALIZED DEFLECTION If we take the interior column (support) away, the uniform balance load will cause the beam to deflected upward In reality, the column and it s foundation restrain this deflection and keep the beam flat at the support.
33 SECONDARY MOMENTS REACTIONS To keep the beam deflection zero at grid B, a restraining force is required to counter balance the upward movement. This can be viewed as a point load on the beam.
34 SECONDARY MOMENTS MOMENT DIAGRAM With a reaction (concentrated load) replacing the column at mid span, a tension on the bottom moment is generated. Regardless of how many spans, the secondary moment is tension on the bottom for typical slab/beam conditions. (T)
35 SECONDARY MOMENTS MOMENT DIAGRAM With a reaction (concentrated load) replacing the column at mid span, a tension on the bottom moment is generated. Regardless of how many spans, the secondary moment is tension on the bottom for typical slab/beam conditions. (C)
36 SECONDARY MOMENTS CONCEPT Once the tendons are stressed, their draped profile will cause an upward deflection of the beam. The interior support (column, wall or beam) will prevent the beam from deflecting at the support. This restraint will create moments in the system that need to be accounted for in the design. The 1.0 load factor is used since there will be appreciable no increase in the strand force, therefore no increase the secondary moments.
37 SECONDARY MOMENTS CALCULATIONS The secondary moment is part of the total moment due to the post-tensioning. M TOTAL = M PRIMARY + M 2 which can be re-written as M 2 = M TOTAL -M PRIMARY M PRIMARY = P * Ecc. = The tendon force multiplied by the distance between the center of strand (cgs) to the center of the section (cgc). This value will change along the length of the drape. This should be an easy number to calculate.
38 SECONDARY MOMENTS In a statically determinate element, M PRIMARY is the M TOTAL since no interior supports exist to create a secondary affect. This is why typical precast members don t have secondary moments.
39 M TOTAL, M PRIMARY AND M 2 At Grid B: M TOTAL = 1.28*60 2 /8 = 576 Ft*Kips P = 293 Kips This is a constant for this beam Ecc = = 7.25 (CGC) (CGS) M PRIMARY = 293 K *7.25 /12 = 177 Ft*Kips M 2 = 576 Ft-K 177 Ft-K = 399 Ft*Kips
40 MOMENT DIAGRAMS (T) Note the M 2 reduces the superimposed (Dead and Live Load) moment at the support while increasing it at mid span. Ignoring M 2 is not conservative.
