Ensuring the Sustainability of Prestressed Concrete ...

Mar 30, 2015  What is prestressed concrete? It is a combination of high strength concrete and steel strands or rods, which are pushed into tubes or pipes built into the concrete for support. This prestressed method is used in the building of bridges, for example, which creates a very strong material, resistant to heavy loads.
