Prestressed Concrete Fifth Edition Upgrade
|256.00||approx. 7-9 days|
For one-semester, senior/graduate-level courses in Prestressed Concrete departments of Civil Engineering.
Completely revised to reflect the new ACI 318-08 Building Code and International Building Code, IBC 2009, this popular text offers a unique approach to examining the design of prestressed concrete members in a logical, step-by-step trial and adjustment procedure. Encouraging clear, systematic thinking, it integrates handy flow charts to help students better understand the steps needed for design and analysis. In addition, the major topics of material behavior, prestress losses, flexure, shear, torsion, and deflection-camber are sequentially self-contained and can be covered in one semester at the senior and graduate levels.
Provides students with material consistent with the increased use of continuous members in bridge structures, and illustrates the use of the basic concepts method, the C-line method, and the balancing method presented in Chapter 1.
Shows students how to use the code recommendations for choice of the appropriate strains in the design of concrete elements.
Discusses the basics of the membrane and bending theories of cylindrical shells for use in the design of prestressed concrete tanks or the various wall boundary conditions of fixed, semi-fixed, hinged and sliding wall bases, as well as the incorporation of vertical prestressing, using wrapped wire as well as tendons, and seismic provisions. This is a unique chapter not available in any other standard textbook.
Simplifies the understanding and application of the subject in design, using both customary US and the SI units in the numerical examples.
Enables students to actually see what happens at failure of beams, columns, two-way slabs, torsional failures, shear failures, etc.
Illustrates the versatility of design in pre-tensioned and post- tensioned prestressed concrete.
Connects a common example to various topics in order to integrate a complete design.
Offers students a unique look at high-rise buildings in high seismicity zones using precast, prestressed concrete moment frame structures.
The Fifth Edition Upgrade has been revised to reflect the new ACI 318-08 Building Code and International Building Code, IBC 2009.
