Combining pre- and post-tensioned tendons

IDEA StatiCa Beam provides designing and code-checking of a prestressed continuous composite beam (type concrete-concrete), combining pre- and post-tensioned tendons. Using the templates speeds-up the definition of tendon layout, prestressing losses, equivalent load due to priestess, etc. This is possible even for complex models like composite cast-in-situ slab laying on precast beams that form a skew bridge supported by elastomer bridge bearings, where the precast beams are indirectly supported by cast-in-situ diaphragms.
