|Abstract:||Computers are widely used in Civil Engineering designs as they can perform computational tasks of a magnitude far beyond the capability of any human. The problem of prestressed concrete continuous beam analysis and design has been dealt within this dissertation. Primarily, the analysis of continuous beam involves application of various load combinations to calculate maximum and minimum moment that can occur at any section 'due to external loading. With these moments known, a section is to be selected which caters the need for critical live load moments as well as keep dead load moments minimum. Thus there are lot of iterat'ive calculations which can be handled easily with the help of computer. A software package has been developed for analysis, design and drafting of prestressed concrete continuous beam. The analysis is carried out by stiffness matrix method while the design of section is carried out by use of dimensionless design variables (6), so as to keep dead load minimum. The design is based on Indian standard specifications. The package has been developed in FORTRAN 77 language using: FORTRAN 77 and Plot88 compilers for use on any IBM compatible computer. The package is made complete and effective by including drafting part which gives the cross sectional view of the section provided and longitudinal profile of beam showing minimum and maximum as well as provided eccentricities. The drafting part of the package is also written in FORTRAN 77 language and executed using plot88 compiler. The working of the software package has been illustrated by solving few design problems. (|
