 Summary:
 The concrete shrinkage strain leads to an initial shortening of the tensioned element and this factor must be taken into account in order to evaluate tension stiffening effects properly. The influence of initially developed concrete shrinkage strain on cracking and post-cracking axial force-strain response of tensioned reinforced concrete element is considered. The paper presents developed proposal for including concrete shrinkage strains in an analysis of tension stiffening effects in cracked tensioned reinforced concrete members.
