High-strength steel wires are stretched by a jacking mechanism that applies a force Q, as represented schematically in part (a) of the figure. Concrete is then poured around the wires to form a beam, as shown in part (b). After the concrete sets properly, the jacks are released and the force Q is removed [see part (c) of the figure]. Thus, the beam is left in a prestressed condition, with the wires in tension and the concrete in compression. Let us assume that the prestressing force Q produces in the steel wires an initial stress 0 620 MPa. If the moduli of elasticity of the steel and concrete are in the ratio 12:1 and the cross-sectional areas are in the ratio 1:50, what are the final stresses s and c in the two materials?
