The book Prestessed Concrete is specially designed for students of engineering who are studying structural engineering. This book not only provides a theoretical explanation but also serves as a guide for practice. This edition of the book is updated according to the latest changes and trends. This book incorporates the latest BIS & IRC codes and also includes integrated limit state concepts in the design of several types of Prestressed concrete structures. This book is equipped with detailed explanations, techniques and various examples. Many case studies of actual buildings and structures are given to make learning an easy process.
In the beginning, the book provides an introduction to Materials for Prestressed Concrete and Prestressing Systems. It is followed by a detailed analysis of Prestress and Bending Stresses. The other chapters in the book deal with topics like Deflections of Prestressed Concrete Members, Flexural Strength of Prestressed Concrete Sections, Shear and Torsional Resistance of Prestressed Concrete Members, Transfer of Prestress in Pretensioned Members, Anchorage Zone Stresses in Post-tensioned Members, Limit-state Design Criteria for Prestressed Concrete Members, Design of Prestressed Concrete Sections, Prestressed Concrete Pipes and Tanks, Concrete Slabs and Grid Floors and Concrete Shell and Folded Plate Structures.
