Although the use of unbonded tendons as the major prestressing technique in design and rehabilitation has been favored for reasons of ease of construction, cost-effectiveness, and maintenance, the overall structural behavior of prestressed with externally unbonded tendon under flexural loading is yet to be well understood, as little work has been done in this field [1].
Application of prestressed steel stayed columns provides substantial increase of these values at the cost of rather higher expenses for fabrication and assembly, and may also affect aesthetics of the structure (Fig.
