In the technical practice there is very often a need of axial force determination in the important structural elements of a building during its construction or operational state with adequate precision. The magnetoelastic method is one of the five experimental techniques usually used for that purpose in civil engineering practice. The modified magnetoelastic method is especially aimed on experimental evaluation of the axial forces in the prestressed steel reinforcements on prestressed concrete structures and it is usable not only for newly built structures but in particular for existing ones. New information and knowledge about practical application of the new approach based on the magnetoelastic principle is introduced in the paper. The results of three experiments are summarized, which were realized on the full locked cable PV 150 standardly used as a cable stay strand, on the MUKUSOL threadbar 15FS 0000 generally applied as a temporary prestressed reinforcement and on some prestressed tendons of an existing concrete road bridge, which is about thirty years old.
