For one-semester, senior/graduate-level courses in Prestressed Concrete in the department of Civil Engineering.Completely revised to reflect the new ACI 318-02 Building Code and International Building Code 2000 and its 2002 modifications, this popular text offers a unique approach to examining the design of prestressed concrete members in a logical, step-by-step trial and adjustment procedure. Encouraging clear, systematic thinking, it integrates handy flow charts to help students better understand the steps needed for design and analysis. Extensive discussions on material properties and concrete performance are provided, as well as an in-depth analysis of prestressing of circular tanks for liquid and gas containment and their prestressed shell roofs.
