Determine the meaning of Prestressed Concrete

It is a type of concrete in which permanent internal stresses of  a suitable nature, magnitude and distribution are intentionally introduced, usually by tensioned steel, to counteract, to the desired extent, the undesirable stresses caused in the member in service. Based on the type of construction, prestressed concrete may be classified as either pre-tensioned concrete or post-tensioned concrete.
