Tension Force(Ts) for a Prestressed Section Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
tension_force = Area of non prestressed steel*non prestressed youngs modulus*strain in the longitudinal reinforcement
Nu = As*Εs*εs
This formula uses 3 Variables
Variables Used
Area of non prestressed steel - Area of non prestressed steel is described as the the area of steel when the prestess is not applied (Measured in Square Meter)
non prestressed youngs modulus - non prestressed youngs modulus is defined as the modulus of elasticity of non prestressed. (Measured in Kilogram per Centimeter³)
strain in the longitudinal reinforcement- strain in the longitudinal reinforcement is respresented as the induced strain in the reinforcement in the vertical direction.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Area of non prestressed steel: 50 Square Meter --> 50 Square Meter No Conversion Required
non prestressed youngs modulus: 50 Kilogram per Centimeter³ --> 50000000 Kilogram per Meter³ (Check conversion here)
