The age-adjusted effective modulus method has been known to provide more precise assessment than the traditional Yassumi method for long-term behavior estimation of prestressed composite girders. The age-adjusted effective modulus method, however, involves complicated calculation, thereby making the Yassumi method more prevalent in actual design. This study presents rational approaches to revise creep coefficients for the Yassumi method by using parametric study results obtained from the age-adjusted effective modulus method.
