### Optimum Design of Prestressed Concrete Beams

Optimum Design of Prestressed Concrete Beams P. B. R. Dissanayake and S. Jothy Karma Abstract: One of the motivations in optimizing structures is to reduce the overall weight, which often results in reduced material cost. Efficiency implies minimum cost or minimum weight while satisfying a variety of strength and stiffness requirements.
