Prestressing Force

Hello there,

I am modeling a PT floor slab. I am wondering if the prestressing force in the tendon input is considered in RAM as the initial prestressing force or the effective prestressing force after all the losses. 

Also, how much percentage loss in prestressing force RAM takes into consideration. Is there a way to look at it in the output so that I can compensate for that force while I apply the force in my input? 

Thank you,
