Experiment and Calculation of Reinforced Concrete At Elevated Temperatures- for free

Reinforced Concrete

Reinforced concrete structures are the most common components of structural engineering. Reinforced concrete structures have made great strides due to their engineering experience and research results, improved manufacturing techniques and the application of new and efficient materials.

The figure of merit is continuously increasing, the structure composition is more diverse, and the scope of application is greatly expanded. Today, reinforced-concrete structures are widely used not only in various civil and public buildings, single-layer and multi-layer industrial buildings, high-rise and large-span buildings, but also in bridges, communications equipment, hydraulic and underground engineering.

Reinforced or pre stressed concrete structures are used in special structures, for example, TV towers, electric transmission rods, silos, chimneys, nuclear reactors and containment systems in nuclear power plants.


This book provides important concepts, experimental data, and methods and parameters for theoretical analysis to engineers and engineers engaged in research, design, and construction when designing and calculating the resistance of structures at high temperatures (fire) and handling existing structures after a fire accident. Also, the book can be used as a textbook for concrete structures courses by university lecturers, graduate students, and structural engineering graduate students.
