Loss of Prestress due to Elastic Shortening of Concrete

Due to elastic shortening of  concrete, tendons are able to reduce their stretched length to the same extent upto which the reduction of  length occurs in concrete. Due to this, strains in  tendons (and hence stresses in tendons) are reduced, causing loss of prestress. This loss is known as loss of prestress due to elastic shortening of concrete.
