Analysis of partially prestressed beams in which cracking under service loads is allowed requires a knowledge of geometric cross section properties such as neutral axis, centroid, area and moment of initia of this cracked transformed section. Especially an exact calculation for the stresses of steel and concrete and the width of crack and the amount of deflection can be obtained with accrurate prediction of neutral of centroidal axis location. In this paper, the procedures for predicting the centroidal axis location of partially cracked prestressed concrete members, using the compatibility of deformation of concrete and steel are formulated and compared with Dilger`s computed results. And also the computed results according to this paper are compared with Branson`s experimental results.
