Assignment # 2 - Flexural Analysis
(Due: October 7, 2013-Beginning of Class)
Problem 1
Design a simply supported pretensioned double T-beam for a parking garage withharped tendon and with a span of 75 ft. Use ACI 318 building code allowablestresses. The beam has to carry a superimposed sustained service live load of 1400 plf and superimposed dead load of 250 plf. Assume that the beam is made of normal weight concrete with

is 65 percentof the cylinder strength. Assume that time dependent losses of prestress are 24 percent of the initial prestress. Use

Problem 2
Design a simply supported pretensioned beam with a parabolic tendon profile anda span of 80 ft. The beam has to carry a superimposed sustained service live loadof 1200 plf and superimposed dead load of 100 plf. Due to architecturalconstraints, certain geometric dimensions of the beam are fixed as shown in thefollowing figure. You are free to change other dimensions to fulfill your designneeds. Assume that the beam is made of normal weight concrete with
