Paperback
The third edition of this highly successful text is thoroughly revised and updated to include recent developments in the design of prestressed concrete structures. It incorporates the salient design recommendations of national and major international codes of practice. The integrated limit state approach is followed in design of prestressed concrete structures with emphasis on it's practical aspects. All important design principles are illustrated through numerous worked-out examples. New to this edition are revisions in the Indian, British, American and Australian codes of practice with reference to high strength concrete mixes, flexural and shear strength computations, design of composite members, design for shear, bending and torsion, estimation of long-term deflections and crack width in prestresses members. In addition, the book has completely rewritten chapters on Deflection of prestressed concrete members and statically indeterminate structures. It includes a chapter on design of prestressed concrete bridges - explores new methods in design of high strength concrete mixes and highlights the various practical applications of prestressed concrete.
