An analytical method is presented for the derivation of the moment-curvature relations for prestressed, partially prestressed and reinforced concrete sections subjected to cyclic loading in the inelastic range. The method utilizes stress-strain models for concrete, reinforcing steel and prestressing steel subject to cyclic stresses. The derived moment-curvature relations are compared with experimental curves obtained from test beams and are shown to give good agreement. The analytical method is… CONTINUE READING
