There are three different types of reinforcement are used in prestressing are:
1. Equilibrium reinforcement – when the prestressing load is applying on some Anchorage, then that type reinforcement are used.
2. Spalling reinforcement – when the spalling stress is induced behind the loaded area of anchorage block, then we can use spalling reinforcement.
3. Bursting reinforcement – maximum bursting stress is induced when tensile stress is developing during prestressing then the bursting reinforcement is used.
