Concrete Structures: Stresses and Deformations: Analysis and Design for Sustainability

With sustainability becoming a primary consideration in contemporary structures, infrastructure specifications often require a service life of 100 years. The current title offers effective methods for predicting true stresses and deflections of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, with this fourth edition placing a new emphasis on designing for serviceability. Specific topics covered include: creep and shrinkage of concrete and relaxation of steel; stress and strain of uncracked sections; analysis of time-dependent internal forces in uncracked structures; stress and strain of cracked sections; displacements of cracked members; simplified prediction of deflections; temperature effects; control of cracking; corrosion of steel reinforcement; analysis and design for fatigue; design for serviceability of prestressed concrete; nonlinear analysis of plane frames; and serviceability of members reinforced with fiber reinforced polymers. Practicing engineers and graduate students will particularly find this book useful.
