Book Description

Written in simple and easy to understand language; Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodes (PDF) will be the best ebook you buy on the topic! Ordinary concrete is strong in compression but weak in tension. Even reinforced concrete; where steel bars are used to take up the tension that the concrete cannot resist; is prone to cracking and corrosion under low loads.

Prestressed concrete is highly resistant to stress; and is used as a building material for bridges; shell roofs; tanks; floors; buildings; containment vessels for nuclear power plants and offshore oil platforms. With a wide range of benefits such as crack control; low rates of corrosion; thinner slabs; fewer joints; and increased span length; prestressed concrete is a stronger; safer; more economical and more sustainable building material.

The introduction of the Eurocodes has necessitated a new approach to the design of prestressed concrete structures and this book provides a comprehensive practical guide for professionals through each stage of the design process. Each chapter focuses on a specific aspect of design



    • Detailed coverage of post-tensioned structures


    • An introduction to earthquake-resistant design using EC 8


    • Examples of pre-tensioned and post-tensioned bridge design


    • Extensive coverage of the design of flat slabs using the finite element method


    • Fully consistent with Eurocode 2; and the associated parts of Eurocodes 1 and 8


    • Examples of challenges often encountered in professional practice worked through in full



Examining the design of whole structures as well as the design of sections through many fully worked numerical examples which allow the reader to follow each step of the design calculations; this book will be of great interest to practicing engineers who need to become more familiar with the use of the Eurocodes for the design of prestressed concrete structures. It will also be of value to university students with an interest in the practical design of whole structures.
