Short End Blocks for Prestressed Beams

The paper suggests an analytical method for evaluating the tensile stresses present within a short end block and in the web of the adjacent I-beam section. It is intended primarily for use with beams prestressed by external cables, but is not confined to these. J. R. RYDZEWSKI and F. J. WHITBREAD
