Description

Simple design, low life cycle costs, and fast, easy construction are just a few of the reasons that make prestressed concrete attractive for use in bridges, water and wastewater storage tanks, ocean dock construction, flooring, and more. Prestressed Concrete covers the fundamentals of prestressing, systems of prestressing, losses, the ultimate strength of sections in flexure, shear and torsion, anchorage zone stresses, limit state concepts and holistic design of prestressed concrete elements. The book also provides information on design of determinate structures and indeterminate structures (beams and frames) inclusive of cable profiling. It discusses special structures like pipes, water tanks, etc. and the behavior of composite structures such as precast prestressed concrete beams cast- in-situ R.C. slab, along with its design provisions. Prestressed Concrete is a valuable guide for practicing engineers, students, and researchers.
