From the Back Cover:

A state-of-the-art book written by a national and international expert on concrete structures and materials, this third edition of Prestressed Concrete reflects the very latest ACI 318-99 Code and the International Building Code, IBC 2000. It puts at the disposal of the user the author's many years of professional and academic know-how in design, construction, and forensic engineering.

This book is different from most because its major topics of material behavior, prestress losses, flexure, shear, torsion, and deflection-camber are sequentially self-contained and can be covered in one semester at the senior and the graduate levels. It uniquely follows procedures given in over 20 flowcharts and 400 illustration that simplify the understanding and application of the subject in design, using both the customary US and the SI units in the examples. Additionally, you will find:

  • A detailed chapter on the design of statically indeterminate prestressed beams and portal frames.
  • A revised chapter containing the latest ACI an AASHTO Provisions on the design of post-tensioned beam anchorage end blocks using the strut-and-tie approach.
  • A revised chapter on slender columns including a simplified load-contour biaxial bending method.
  • A new chapter, with comprehensive design examples on LRFD and Standard design of bridge deck members for flexure, shear and torsion, conforming to the latest AASHTO specifications.
  • A new chapter on seismic design of ductile prestressed concrete frames and shear walls in high seismicity zones conforming to the latest IBC 2000 and ACI 318-99.
  • A comprehensive chapter on the design of prestressed concrete tanks and shell roofs.
