Principle of Prestressing 
Prestressing is a method by which predeterminedcompression force is applied to the concrete section before loading.
The effect of prestressing is to reduce the tensile stress
in the section to the point that the tensile stress is belowthe cracking stress. Thus, the concrete does not crack!
