These proceedings present high-level research in structural engineering, concrete mechanics and quasi-brittle materials, including the prime concern of durability requirements and earthquake resistance of structures.In the present experiment failure happened before the strands reached the yield point. Yielding of the prestressing ... load step of the numerical analysis. The finite element model gave a reasonably good prediction for the location of the failure.
