This consistently successful core textbook enables civil and structural engineering students to develop a sound understanding of the fundamentals and to use relevant principles to solve practical problems.
Covering all the main topics currently taught in schools of engineering, this fourth edition has been comprehensively revised in line with Eurocodes and includes new sections on topics such as the properties and behaviour of high-strength, high-performance concrete; deep beams; concrete slabs and strut-and-tie models for design.
Practical design and detailing information is intrinsic throughout the chapters to add clarity and ease of discussion. Spreadsheet-based computer programs are referred to and are available on a companion website. With new worked examples and problems and thorough references for further reading, the book:
- explains in simple terms the basic principles and the fundamental behaviour of structural concrete members
- shows, with worked examples, how to design such members to satisfy the requirements of Eurocode 3
- explains simply the technical background to the requirements of Eurocode 3, relating these where appropriate to recent research.
As with previous editions, civil engineering students will find Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete an invaluable resource in getting to grips with the 'why', the 'what' and the 'how' of this subject.
