Serviceability limit states during the execution stages: the value of k for tensile stresses

Eurocode 2 part 2: Design of concrete bridge structures   113.3.2 (103)

Even for bridges or elements of bridges in which the limit-state of decompression is checked under the quasi-permanent or frequent combination of actions on the completed structure, tensile stresses less than kfctm(t) under the quasi-permanent combination of actions during execution are permitted


The recommended value of k is 1,0.
