Design of Concrete Structures 14th Edition

The fourteenth edition Design of Concrete Structures has the same dual objectives,first to establish a firm understanding of the behavior of Structural Concrete,then to develop proficiency in the methods used in current design practice.It has been updated in accordance with provisions of 2008 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building code.

Designing with Precast and Prestressed Concrete

Precast concrete consists of concrete (a mixture of cement, water, aggregates and admixtures) that is cast into a specific shape at a location other than its in service position. The concrete is placed into a form,typically wood or steel, and cured before being stripped from the form,usually the following day.These components are
then transported to the construction site for erection into place.Precast concrete can be plant-cast or site-cast, but this book deals specifically with plant-cast concrete.

Formwork for Concrete Structures 4th Edition

This book is written for architects, engineers, and constructors
who are responsible for designing and/or building formwork
and temporary structures during the construction process. It is
also designed to serve either as a textbook for a course in timber and
formwork design or as a reference for systematic self-study of the

Advanced Concrete Design | 2nd Edition

This book is lecture based wit each chapter discussing only one topic and an in-depth being given to the fundamentals. Such treatments have been found most suitable for self-study and class room teaching.

Advanced Soil Mechanics | 4th Edition

This textbook is intended for use in an introductory graduate level course that broadens (expands) the fundamental concepts acquired by students in their undergraduate work. The introductory graduate course can be followed by advanced courses dedicated to topics such as mechanical and chemical stabilization of soils, Geo-environmental engineering, finite element application to Geo-technical engineering, critical state soil mechanics, Geo-synthetics, rock mechanics, and others.

Analysis of Pavement Structures

This book is about pavement analysis. A pavement is a multi-layered structure, made of a number of layers placed one over the other. These layers can be made of asphaltic material, cement concrete, bound or unbound stone aggregates, etc. These materials show complex mechanical response with the variation of stress, time, or temperature. Thus, understanding the performance of an in-service pavement structure subjected to vehicular loading and environmental variations is a difficult task.

Concrete Buildings in Seismic Regions

This book is addressed primarily to postgraduate students in earthquake engineering and to practising structural engineers specialising in the design of R/C seismic-resistant buildings.

Durability of Concrete Structures

With proper service conditions reinforced concrete members can last indefinite time without reduction on their load carrying capacity, this raises the fact that the strength of the concrete does not decrease with time but, on the contrary.

Design of Reinforced Concrete | 9th Edition

This book presents an introduction to reinforced concrete design, the material is written in such a manner that interest in the subject and to encourage them to continue with their studies in the year to come.

Durability Design of Concrete Structures

Control of the durability of concrete structures has gained increasing importance at the design and maintenance stages of these structures. Most of the current durability problems of concrete structures in, for example, bridges, dams and façades of buildings could have been avoided with systematic durability design. Such design, however, requires both overall methodology and detailed calculation models of actual deterioration processes. Safety requirements and margins must be defined for service life. This report represents the first systematic attempt to introduce into structural design both a general theory of structural reliability and existing calculation models for the commonest degradation processes

Elastic Beam Calculations Handbook

The present work entitled Elastic Beam Calculations Handbook is a resource book with insights to answer in sufficient detail the pivotal questions “when,” “what,” “how,” and “why.” Furthermore, because of the content, as well as the manner of treatment, which uses a rigorous deductive approach (from general to special cases), this book can effectively supplement textbooks on mechanics of solids for engineering and can enrich applied mathematics curricula through applications in engineering. In either case, it is designed to help the reader achieve his or her optimal educational goals.

Formwork a practical Guide

FRP Composites for Reinforced and Restressed Concrete Structures

The primary purpose of this book is to introduce the reader to the basic concepts of repairing and retrofitting reinforced and restressed concrete structural elements using FRP. Basic material properties, fabrication techniques, design concepts for strengthening in bending, shear, and confinement, and field evaluation techniques are presented. The book is geared toward advanced undergraduate and graduate students, professional engineers, field engineers, and user agencies such as various departments of transportation. A number of flowcharts and design examples are provided to facilitate easy and thorough understanding. Since this is a very active research field, some of the latest techniques such as near-surface mounting (NSM) techniques are not covered in this book. Rather, the aim is to provide the fundamentals and basic information.

Fundamentals of Earthquake Engineering

The book is written so as to be appropriate for international use and sale. The text is supplemented by numerous references, enabling the instructor to pick and choose sections of interest, and to point thereafter to sources of additional information. It is not burdened by massive reference to current codes and standards in the world. Unlike most other texts in the field, after studying this book, the students should be in a position to enter practice and adapt their newly acquired education to the use of regional seismic codes and guidelines with ease, as well as topics not covered in codes. Equally importantly,students who study this book will understand the bases for the design provisions.

Introduction to Design for Civil Engineering |A.W.Beeby

The book is particularly aimed at young engineers and undergraduates. We hope that we have kindled their curiosity, so that students feel that their studies are purposeful. We believe that this in turn will allow the students to derive more from their curriculum.

The Mechanics of Soils and Foundations

The book is aimed primarily at students taking first degree courses in civil engineering but it should also appeal to engineers, engineering geologists and postgraduate students wishing for a simple and straightforward introduction to the current theories of soil mechanics and geotechnical engineering. Although it deals specifically with soils and soil mechanics many of the theories and methods described apply also to rocks and rock mechanics.

National Structural Concrete Specification for Building Construction

This fourth edition of the National Structural Concrete Specification (NSCS) has been completely reviewed and revised to encompass the requirements of the Eurocodes and BS EN 13670: 2009,Execution of concrete structures. It provides a BS EN 13670-compliant specification for use in structural concrete building construction designed to the Eurocodes.

Pavement Analysis and Design | 2nd Edition

Other than the empirical AASHTO methods used by many state highway departments, this book emphasizes principally the mechanistic-empirical method of design. With the availability of personal computers and of sophisticated methods of material testing, the trend toward mechanistic—empirical methods are quite apparent. Itis believed that a book based on mechanistic—empirical methods is more interesting and challenging than one based on empirical methods. This book, with the accompanying computer programs and the large number of illustrative examples, will serve as a classroom text and useful reference for people interested in learning about the structural analysis and design of highway pavements

Pavements Unbound

Engineers have been driven back to a fundamental understanding of the way conventional crushed aggregates behave, how this compares to the behavior of alternatives and how properties may be amended or best exploited to maximize their engineering capacity. In summary, one could say that the aim has been to get the necessary performance from different or poorer materials for less costs there has been a lot of research work in the laboratory, along with practical work in-situ, to assess the properties of relevance and to investigate different formulations. Site trials have been made to demonstrate the feasibility of new construction methods or


Pile Design and Construction Practice

Piling rigs are a commonplace feature on building sites in cities and towns today. The continuing introduction of new, more powerful, and self-erecting machines for installing piled foundations has transformed the economics of this form of construction in ground conditions where, in the past, first consideration would have been given to conventional spread or raft foundations, with piling being adopted only as a last resort in difficult ground.

Plasticity Theory

The book is organized in eight chapters, covering major subject areas;the chapters are divided into sections, and the sections into topical subsections.Almost every section is followed by a number of exercises. The order of presentation of the areas is somewhat arbitrary. It is based on the order in which I have chosen to teach the field, and may easily be criticized by those partial to a different order

Precast Concrete | Materials, Manufacture, Properties and Usage.

The book is aimed not only at people who have considerable experience but also at those new to the subject. Both of these groups of people will wish to extend their knowledge, either in their existing fields or new ones. Although high degrees of knowledge of mathematics,physics, chemistry and engineering are not required of the reader, it is assumed that he or she will have had two or three years of what may be loosely and internationally described as further education. Specifiers,manufacturers, contractors and teachers will all find something of use.

Reinforced concrete Design of Tall Buildings

Engineers are generally characterized as imaginative in their design approach as supported by historical evidence, which includes the creation of ancient structures, medieval cathedrals, and
the skyscrapers of today. None of these structures, except for those built in the last decade, were developed using intense calculations as we know them today, but were more products of inventive

Workability and Quality Control of Concrete

This book is a logical follow-up of the monograph The Workability of Concrete which was published in 1976, and which was inspired by a suggestion from the then Cement and Concrete Association, as a result of lectures I gave for some twenty years on the Advanced Concrete Technology Course held at the Association’s Training Centre at Fulmer Grange. Since 1976 a great deal of work has been done in studies of work-ability measurement and its applications, and it has been demonstrated beyond doubt that the flow properties of fresh concrete can be satisfactorily represented by the Bingham model
