This revised, fully updated second edition covers the analysis, design, and construction of reinforced concrete structures from a real-world perspective. It examines different reinforced concrete elements such as slabs, beams, columns, foundations, basement and retaining walls and pre-stressed concrete incorporating the most up-to-date edition of the American Concrete Institute Code (ACI 318-14) requirements for the design of concrete structures. It includes a chapter on metric system in reinforced concrete design and construction. A new chapter on the design of formworks has been added which is of great value to students in the construction engineering programs along with practicing engineers and architects. This second edition also includes a new appendix with color images illustrating various concrete construction practices, and well-designed buildings. The ACI 318-14 constitutes the most extensive reorganization of the code in the past 40 years. References to the various sections of the ACI 318-14 are provided throughout the book to facilitate its use by students and professionals. Aimed at architecture, building construction, and undergraduate engineering students, the scope of concepts in this volume emphasize simplified and practical methods in the analysis and design of reinforced concrete.

This book provides a comprehensive description of the analysis and design process of some hydraulic concrete structures designed to retain and contain aqueous liquid. The first edition discussed six types of structures of different functions, namely: (a) An underground sedimentation tank for sewage treatment.(b) An underground digestion tank for sludge treatment.(c) An underground reservoir to store fresh potable water.(d) An immersed highway tunnel under the river bed.(e) An indoor swimming pool of rectangular shape for public recreation.(f) A gravity dam across a valley for converting the valley into a fresh water reservoir. This Second Edition incorporates another type of hydraulic structure, namely spillway. The spillway structure plays a vital role in regulating the designed reservoir water level to meet the fluctuating demand of water supply for the generation of hydroelectricity, irrigation and water supply purposes in controlling the height of reservoir water level downstream of the river. The spillway structure subjected to seismic hydrodynamic pressure in addition to the hydrostatic pressure, has been analysed and designed in full compliance with Eurocodes EC 2: Part 1–1 and Part 3 as water-retaining structure. The other six structures have been analysed and designed with reference to the relevant clauses of codes of practice prescribed in Eurocodes 2 and BS 8007 and BS 8110. The book is designed to serve as a useful practical guide and a valuable reference for senior undergraduate students of civil engineering and postgraduate students specializing in structural design, as well as practising and consulting engineers involved in the design and execution of hydraulic concrete structures.

This book is a comprehensive presentation of the fundamental aspects of analysis and design of steel structures. It is primarily meant for the undergraduate students of civil engineering and postgraduate students of structural engineering. It will also be immensely useful for structural engineers engaged in design, consultancy and construction involving steel structures. The important theoretical and practical concepts which need to be assimilated prior to undertaking analysis and design—general principles and practices, functional aspects of structures, basic design concepts, alternative arrangements of equipment and service, clarity of structural behaviour, and calculations of loadings on structures—are covered in the first two chapters. The ensuing chapters provide stepwise presentation of the analysis and design procedures for various steel structures and structural elements/members on the basis of Eurocodes and British (BS) codes of practice. The three types of structures specifically covered, on the basis of functional aspects, are scrap yard structures, conveyor structural systems, and turbo-generator buildings. In the Second Edition, analysis and design of steel structures have been carried out based on Indian Standard code of practice IS 800:2007. Every component of the structure comprising the beams and columns is designed in compliance with the code IS 800:2007. A comparison has been made between the results of the steel structures analysed and designed in compliance with EC3: Part 1-1 and those obtained in accordance with Indian Standard code of practice IS 800:2007. The book discusses the various structural analyses and design calculations in an exhaustive manner. The text is illustrated with an abundant number of visuals. Important sources of information relevant to steel structures can be found in the references at the end of various chapters.

First published in 1984, Limit Analysis and Concrete Plasticity explains for advanced design engineers the principles of plasticity theory and its application to the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, providing a thorough understanding of the subject, rather than simply applying current design formulas. Updated and revised throughout, Limit Analysis and Concrete Plasticity, Third Edition adds— Reinforcement design formulas for three-dimensional stress fields that enable design of solid structures (also suitable for implementation in computer-based lower bound optimizations) Improved explanations of the crack sliding theory and new solutions for beams with arbitrary curved shear cracks, continuous beams, lightly shear reinforced beams and beams with large axial compression More accurate treatment of and solutions for beams with circular cross-section Applications of crack sliding theory to punching shear problems New solutions that illustrate the implication of initial cracking on load-carrying capacity of disks Yield condition for the limiting case of isotropically cracked disk The authors also devote an entirely new chapter to a recently developed theory of rigid-plastic dynamics for seismic design of concrete structures. In comparison with time-history analyses, the new theory is simpler to use and leads to large material savings. With this chapter, plasticity design methods for both statical and dynamical loads are now covered by the book.
