Analysis and design with emphasis on the application of AS 3600-2009

Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete is the most comprehensive, up-to-the-minute text for students and instructors in civil and structural engineering, and for practising engineers requiring a full grasp of the latest Australian Concrete Structures Standard, AS 3600-2009.

Topics are presented in detail, covering the theoretical and practical aspects of analysis and design, with an emphasis on the application of AS 3600-2009.

The first major national code to embrace the use of high-strength concrete of up to 100 MPa, the latest Standard also includes major technological upgrades, new analysis and design formulas, and new and more elaborate processes.

This text addresses all such advances, and features chapters on bending, shear, torsion, bond, deflection and cracking, beams, slabs, columns, walls, footings, pile caps and retaining walls, as well as prestressed beams and end blocks plus an exposition on strut-and-tie modelling.

With an abundance of applied examples, Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete is an essential resource for both students and engineers in their continuing learning and professional education.

Preface to Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete PDF Book


Most of the contents of this book were originally developed in the late 1980s at the University of Wollongong, New South Wales.

The contents were targeted towards third-year courses in reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The book was believed useful for both students learning the subjects and practising engineers wishing to apply with confidence the then newly published Australian Standard AS 3600-1988.

In 1995 and following the publication of AS 3600-1994, the contents were updated at Griffith University (Gold Coast Campus) and used as the learning and teaching material for the third-year course ‘Concrete structures’ (which also covers prestressed concrete).

In 2002, further revisions were made to include the technical advances of AS 3600-2001. Some of the book’s more advanced topics were used for part of the Griffith University postgraduate course ‘Advanced reinforced concrete’.

In anticipation of the publication of the current version of AS 3600, which was scheduled for 2007, a major rewrite began early that year to expand on the contents and present them in two parts.

The effort continued into 2009 which produced in Part I Reinforced concrete, inter alia, the new chapters on walls, as well as on footings, pile caps and retaining walls, plus an appendix on strut-and-tie modelling.

In addition, a new Part II has been written, which covers five new chapters on prestressed concrete. The entire manuscript was then thoroughly reviewed and revised as appropriate following the publication of AS 3600-2009 in late December 2009.

In line with the original aims, the book contains extensive fundamental materials for learning and teaching purposes.

It is also useful for practising engineers, especially those wishing to have a full grasp of the new AS 3600-2009. This is important, as the 2009 contents have been updated and expanded significantly, and for the first time, provisions for concrete compressive strength up to 100 MPa are included.

The increase in concrete strength has resulted in major changes to many of the analysis and design equations. Part I contains 11 chapters.

An introduction to the design requirements and load combinations is given in Chapter 1, and the properties of and specifications for concrete and reinforcing steel are discussed in Chapter 2.

Chapter 3 presents, in detail, the bending analysis and design of rectangular beams, T-beams and other flanged sections. Some significant attention is given to doubly reinforced members.

Deflection and crack control are considered in Chapter 4, which also features a section on the effects of repeated loading.

Also presented is a unified crack-width formula for reinforced and prestressed beams. Chapter 5 details transverse and longitudinal shear design, and Chapter 6 presents the design procedure for torsion.

Bond and stress development are treated in Chapter 7, and Chapter 8 covers most of the practical aspects of slab analysis and design.

It also includes a separate section describing a design exercise that features the complete (multiple-load case) analysis of a three-storey flat-plate structure, as well as the detailed design of typical floor panels.

Chapter 9 deals with the analysis and design of columns, including the treatment of arbitrary cross-sections using numerical and semi-graphical methods.

The new Chapter 10 examines the use of relevant strength design formulas for walls subjected to vertical axial loads, as well as under combined axial and horizontal in-plane shear forces.

This is followed by the new Chapter 11, with an extensive and in-depth coverage of the design of wall and column footings, pile caps and retaining walls.

Part II contains five chapters. Prestressed concrete fundamentals, including pre and post-tensioning processes, are introduced in Chapter 12.

Chapters 13 and 14 cover the critical stress state approach to the analysis and design of fully prestressed concrete flexural members, which ensures a crack-free and overstress-free service life for the members.

The ultimate strength analysis and design of fully and partially prestressed beams are dealt with in Chapter 15. The final chapter (Chapter 16) presents the design of end blocks for prestressing anchorages.
