Here is a testcase you can run.
Thanks Thomas, that's an interesting one to test. Let me see what my FC routine comes up with for this case.
That would be perfect. Do you know how to model a curved cylinder in FC? I made a CompSolid of a cube with 2 cylinders, but curved cables requires something more fancy. I would be keen to try...thschrader wrote: ↑Tue May 22, 2018 10:16 am@Harry:
When you use straight prestressed rebars, you get a negative constant moment in the beam.
You can compensate the max M (from selfweight/loading) in the middle of
the beam, but at the end of the beams you have unnecessary negative moments.
The rebars for prestressing should have the layout according to the momentum line
you want to compensate.
Yes, but the meshing on the parabolic rebars gives a mesh only for the beam itself.
