a) Find the eccentricity for the simply supported beam & Also show the distribution at zero compressive stresses on the vertical section at the mid span, produced by total load and pre stressed tendon.If it is pre stressed by a straight tendon that causes an effective force of 233 kips. If the beam comes a total service load of 1.2 kip/ft including the dead load of 0.21 kip/ft. Solution:
