The main objective of Working Party 2.1.2 is to present practical recommendations for the design of reinforced and post-tensioned concrete structures to accommodate the effects of restrained and imposed deformations. This involves looking into the causes of internally-induced and externallyimposed deformations and point out their different influences on the structural behaviour. The WP will assess various effects that may affect the degree of restraint such as superimposed loading and presence of prestressing, and propose modifications to existing design criteria where relevant.
Guidance will be given on the use of nonlinear response analysis for rigorous response prediction.
