The object of Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodes is to assist students and professional engineers to design prestressed concrete structures using Eurocodes 1, 2 and 8. Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodes book is assumed that the reader is familiar with the design of reinforced concrete structures.
Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodes is suitable not only for professional engineers familiar with prestressed concrete design but also for use in university courses as sufficient introductory material has been included.
Eurocodes related to design in structural concrete are very substantial documents and the present Prestressed Concrete Design to Eurocodeshas been kept to a manageable length by confining the attention to rules related mainly to prestressed concrete design.
All important clauses are discussed in detail and their use illustrated by copious examples. Complete calculations are given for all numerical examples. Grateful acknowledgements are extended to the following individuals and organizations for help in writing the book
