GATE 2013   CE   Question No. 35

A rectangular concrete beam 250 mm wide and 600 mm deep is pre-stressed by means of 16 high tensile wires, each of 7 mm diameter, located at 200 mm from the bottom face of the beam at a given section. If the effective pre-stress in the wires is 700 MPa, what is the maximum sagging bending moment (in kNm) (correct to 1-decimal place) due to live load that this section of the beam can withstand without causing tensile stress at the bottom face of the beam ? Neglect the effect of dead load of beam. ________________
