Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete remains the most comprehensive text for engineering students and instructors as well as practising engineers. This second edition has been updated to reflect recent amendments to the Australian Standard for Concrete Structures AS3600-2009. The content is presented in a clear, easy-to-follow manner and this edition features even more illustrative and design examples to aid comprehension of complex concepts. Part I addresses the analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures; Part II covers topics on prestressed concrete. Additional technical and practical information is set out in four appendices. Each chapter includes a set of problems that consolidates what students have learnt. Worked solutions to the problems are available to instructors on the companion website at www.cambridge.edu.au/academic. Thorough in its treatment, with many practical formulas, diagrams and tables, this book is an indispensable resource for students and engineers in their continuing learning and professional education.
