About the Authors
  • 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, AS3600-2009. Topics are presented in detail, covering the theoretical and practical aspects of analysis and design, with an emphasis on the application of AS3600-2009. 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.

    • Addresses Australian Concrete Structures Standard AS3600-2009
    • Over 100 tutorial questions and worked examples
    • Separate website with updates and full solutions to tutorial questions in-text
