The negative bending moments produced by the eccentric tendon at the moment of failure were 13.88, 11.89, 19.16, and 14.71 kN-m for specimens F2/OAK-1 to 4, respectively.
It consists of a force-multiplier device made up of two connecting rods anchored to an eccentric tendon (Figure 1).
A multiplier device was considered, made up of two rods anchored by an eccentric tendon (Figure 1) with an initial angle of [[alpha].sub.0] = 26.57[degrees] that corresponds to a multiplier of 4.0 force value.
