In the past century, a new form of concrete evolved and is called prestressed concrete. In prestressed concrete, initial compressive stress is induced in the concrete before actual loading. So, it can withstand tensile stresses in a better way.
IS:1343-2012 comprises the criteria and necessity for prestressed concrete members. It gives in detail the general requirements of details, material, workmanship, and technology.
In IS 1343: 2012, the discussion of prestressed concrete is divided into 4 sections.
The section 1 is General section describing symbols used in code and reference, scope of the code and terminology is given.
The section 2 is on material, workmanship, and inspection and testing.
The section 3 in IS 1343: 2012 is on the design requirements of the prestressed concrete elements.
The section 4, the last one is dedicated to structural design with limit state design theory.
