Prestressed Concrete

The prestressed concrete type can be used with either the Circle or Rectangle cross section.

Within the Define Pile Properties dialog only the outer cross section dimensions and concrete compressive strength are defined. The bulk of the reinforced concrete section is defined in the Concrete Designer, which has two tabs:

  • Reinforcement - patterns of reinforcing bars can be added, modified, deleted, and assigned to piles
  • Casing/Core

NOTE: It is the user's responsibility to check whether or not a defined section is compliant with any relevant codes. These checks are NOT performed in RSPile.


The following input parameters are required:

  • Strand Type - the standard prestressing strand types are available.
  • Strand Size - standard sizes are available.
  • Pattern Type
  • Prestressing Properties


Bundled bars can be specified using the Bundled Bars checkbox.

The bundled bars option just multiplies the rebar area by the number of bars specified as a bundle.


The following material properties are required:

  • Force Before Losses
  • Fraction of Loss
