Design Of Prestressed Concrete To Eurocode 2nd Edition- free

prestressed concrete

A proper understanding of structural behavior at all stages of loading is essential for the design of prestressed concrete structures. It is also essential to have a thorough knowledge of the design criteria (including rules and requirements and their background) specified in the relevant design standards.

The purpose of this book is to provide a detailed description and explanation of the behavior of prestressed concrete members and structures under both service and ultimate loads and, in so doing, to provide a comprehensive guide to structural design. The majority of the text is based on first principles, relying solely on the principles of mechanics and the properties of concrete and steel. This book refers to the provisions of Eurocode 2 (EN 1992-1-1:2004) and other relevant EN standards where design requirements are specific to the standard, and where possible the notation is the same as in the Eurocode.

There is also a sister edition that conforms to the requirements of the Australian Standard for Concrete Structures AS 3600-2009, and the notation is the same as in the Australian Standard.

About the Book

The first edition of this book was published more than 25 years ago and has been awaiting a comprehensive update and revision. This edition incorporate the fundamental aspects of prestressed concrete behavior and design that were well received in the first edition, as well as the latest advances in the design of modern prestressed concrete structures.

This book is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in civil and structural engineering, as well as practicing structural engineers. It retains the clear, concise explanations and easy-to-read style of the first edition. The authors have nearly 100 years of combined experience in teaching, research, and design of prestressed concrete structures, and this book reflects this wealth of experience.

The book ranges from an introduction to the fundamentals of prestressed concrete to in-depth coverage of more advanced topics in modern prestressed concrete structures.

Chapter1 introduces the basic concepts of prestressed concrete, while Chapter2 outlines the concept of limit state design as used in European practice. Chapter2 outlines the limit state design philosophy used in European practice. Chapter3 introduces the hardware required for prestressed concrete and post-tensioned concrete structures, including construction considerations. In Chapter4, material properties relevant to design are presented and discussed. Chapter5 deals comprehensively with the in-service design of prestressed concrete beams.

The instantaneous and time-dependent behavior of the cross sections under service loads is discussed in detail, and analytical methods for both crack-free and cracked cross sections a red is cussed. Chapters 6 and 7 deal with the strength design of members against bending, shear, and torsion, and Chapter8 deals with the design of anchorage in both pre-tensioned and post-tensioned members. Chapter9 provides guidance on the design of composite prestressed concrete beams and includes a detailed example of the analysis of a composite through-girder pedestrian bridge. Chapter10 describes the design procedure for statically determinate beams.

Chapter11 covers the analysis and design of statically indeterminate beams and frames and provides guidance on the treatment of secondary effects at all stages of loading. Chapter12 discusses the analysis and design of two-way slab systems in detail, including aspects related to both strength and serviceability. Chapter14 outlines guide lines for successful detailed design of structural elements and connections in prestressed concrete structures.
