Offers a full understanding of the mechanics and behavior of prestressed concrete structures, at the same time providing insights into design methods and practices. Completely up-to-date, being fully consistent with all provisions of the newly-revised ACI 381-77 which governs design of this and other types of structural concrete. Author pays careful attention to the theory and design of precast pretensioned concrete members, which account for much of the U.S. market since the introduction of prestressed concrete in this country in the 1950s. Recognizing a current trend toward fuller exploitation of the potential of post-tensioned prestressed concrete for structures from ordinary slabs to long-span bridge construction, the author also presents a thorough foundation for the analysis and design of post-tensioned members, continuous as well as simple span.
