      DEAR SIRnI have few queries regarding prestressed concrete beam modeling using APDL (GUI).nhow to obtain the applied load, if we go with displacement control method, and also what are the setting need to do in solution control tabnhow to apply prestress via inistate code, since the inistate code do not work for me in APDL, what should be the reason kindly tell the step wise step to apply prestrain to link180 elementnwhat is the exact tolerance limits need to consider in the convergence setting, for F & U=?nin the out put window lot of strain values are given (elastic,plastic,pricipal, mechanical etc). i want to plot the strain along the depth of prestress beam at first crack, yield load and ultimate failure. then kindly suggest which strain parameter i need to consider at these locations respectively.n

      Hello everyone,nI want to find the strain in convention steel rebar and prestressing steel tendon at different loading stages up to ultimate failure along the length of steel reinforcements. Kindly suggest which strain in the output window i need to select at first crack, yielding of normal steel and PS steel and at ultimate failure stage.nThank youn
