Modeling Prestress Elements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can anyone offer info/examples on how to model prestress elements in ETABs? Computer and Structures, Inc. recommends using a gradient temperature load to model the prestress. We are thinking that some sort of internal load condition should do the trick.
 
Examples of ".e2k" files or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
