The Design of Prestressed Concrete Bridges: Concepts and Principles by Robert Benaim

Product Description

Examining the fundamental differences between design and analysis, Robert Benaim explores the close relationship between aesthetic and technical creativity and the importance of the intuitive, more imaginative qualities of design that every designer should employ when designing a structure.Aiding designers of concrete bridges in developing an intuitive understanding of structural action, this book encourages innovation and the development of engineering architecture. Simple, relevant calculation techniques that should precede any detailed analysis are summarized. Construction methods used to build concrete bridge decks and substructures are detailed and direct guidance on the choice and the sizing of different types of concrete bridge deck is given. In addition guidance is provided on solving recurring difficult problems of detailed design and realistic examples of the design process are provided.

This book enables concrete bridge designers to broaden their scope in design and provides an analysis of the necessary calculations and methods.

About the Author

Robert Benaim is a world-renowned specialist in the design of prestressed concrete structures. In 1980 he formed Robert Benaim & Associates, opening offices in London, Hong Kong, Malaysia and Singapore before retiring to private practice in 2000.

Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design 5th Edition by James K. Wight and James G. MacGregor

Product Description

Reinforced concrete design encompasses both the art and science of engineering. This book presents the theory of reinforced concrete as a direct application of the laws of statics and mechanics of materials. In addition, it emphasizes that a successful design not only satisfies design rules, but also is capable of being built in a timely fashion and for a reasonable cost. A multi-tiered approach makes Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design an outstanding textbook for a variety of university courses on reinforced concrete design. Topics are normally introduced at a fundamental level, and then move to higher levels where prior educational experience and the development of engineering judgment will be required.

From the Publisher

Based on the latest (1995) edition of the authoritative American Concrete Institute Building Code, this text explains the theory and practice of reinforced concrete design in a systematic and clear fashion — with an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations, and photographs. The focus is on preparing students to make the many judgment decisions required in reinforced concrete design, and reflects the author’s extensive experience and expertise as both a teacher of reinforced concrete design and as a member of various code committees.

Understanding Structural Engineering: From Theory to Practice by Wai-Fah Chen & Salah El-Din E. El-Metwally

Product Description

In our world of seemingly unlimited computing, numerous analytical approaches to the estimation of stress, strain, and displacement—including analytical, numerical, physical, and analog techniques—have greatly advanced the practice of engineering. Combining theory and experimentation, computer simulation has emerged as a third path for engineering design and performance evaluation. As a result, structural engineers working in the practical world of engineering must apply and, ideally, thrive on these idealizations of science-based theories.Analyzing the major achievements in the field, Understanding Structural Engineering demonstrates how to bring science to engineering design. This book illustrates:

  • Key conceptual breakthroughs in structural engineering in the twentieth century
  • The science of structural engineering from basic mechanics and computing to the ultimate process of engineering design
  • How engineers implement theory to practice through idealizations and simplifications
  • Current and future trends in structural engineering

Developments and advancements in structural engineering hinge on a few key breakthroughs in concepts, simplifications and idealizations. Simplification, inherent in the art of structural engineering, is a key theme throughout this book. But the authors go further. Their clear explanations of the role and impact of new, science-based developments shows you how to put them into practice.

Excellence in Concrete Construction through Innovation by Mukesh C Limbachiya and Hsein Y. Kew

Product Description

The concrete industry has embraced innovation and ensured high levels of long-term performance and sustainability through creative applications in design and construction. As a construction material, the versatility of concrete and its intrinsic benefits mean it is still well placed to meet challenges of the construction industry. Indeed, concrete has kept evolving to satisfy ever more stringent, as well as demanding design requirements and calls to improve the performance. This has been achieved through the introduction of new constituent materials, technologies and construction methods.
The current challenges faced by concrete construction may not necessarily be the same as those in the future. However, an ongoing programme of innovation and product development means that concrete should continue to provide cost effective sustainable solutions that are able to turn a challenge into an opportunity.
