The design of structures in basic, and prestressed concrete structures in specific, needs significantly more details than is consisted of in building regulations. A sound understanding of structural behaviour at all phases of packing is necessary. This book provides a comprehensive description and description of the behaviour of prestressed concrete members and structures, both at service loads and at supreme loads, and in doing so, offers a detailed and up-to-date guide to structural design.
Much of the book is based upon very first concepts and relies just on the concepts of mechanics and the homes of concrete and steel, with many worked examples. However, where the design requirements are code particular, this book refers to the arrangements of the Australian Standard for Concrete Structures (AS3600-2009) and, where possible, the notation is the exact same as in AS3600-2009. A parallel volume is composed to Eurocode 2, the European Standard for the Design of Concrete Structures.
The text ranges from an intro to the basics to in-depth treatments of advanced subjects in modern-day prestressed concrete structures. It fits senior undergraduate and college students, and likewise practicing engineers who desire a detailed guide to the design of prestressed concrete structures. It maintains the clear and succinct descriptions and the simple-to-checked out design of the very first edition, however the material has actually been thoroughly restructured and significantly broadened and upgraded. New chapters cover design treatments, actions, and loads; prestressing systems and building and construction requirements; and connections and detailing. The subject of serviceability is established thoroughly throughout.
The authors have actually been investigating and teaching the behaviour and design of prestressed concrete structures for more than 35 years, and this upgraded edition of the book shows this wealth of experience. The work has actually likewise acquired much from Ian Gilbert’s active and long-time participation in the advancement of the Australian Standards for Concrete Structures (AS3600-2009) and Concrete Bridges (AS5100.5-2012).
