Created for senior-level undergraduate and graduate Civil Engineering courses.Completely revised to reflect the new ACI 318 Building Code, 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 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 more
