Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodes Bhatt, Prab 2

Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodes Bhatt, Prab

Book Description

The object of this book is to assist students and professional engineers to design prestressed concrete structures using Eurocodes 1, 2, and 8. It is assumed that the reader is familiar with the design of reinforced concrete structures.

The book is suitable not only for professional engineers familiar with the prestressed concrete design but also for use in university courses as sufficient introductory material has been included.

Eurocodes related to design in structural concrete are very substantial documents and the present book has been kept to a manageable length by confining the attention to rules related mainly to prestressed concrete design. All important clauses are discussed in detail and their use illustrated by copious examples. Complete calculations are given for all numerical examples.
