    Design of Reinforced Concrete - Jack C. McCormac; Russell H. Brown
    ISBN: 9781118129845
    Publication Date: 2013-02-19
    "The Ninth Edition of this bestselling book continues the successful tradition of earlier editions by introducing the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design in a clear and understandable manner. Numerous examples of the principles discussed are included. This edition includes revisions made by the American Concrete Institute in Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (318-08) and Commentary (318R-08). The text was prepared for an introductory three credit hour undergraduate course on reinforced concrete design. Nevertheless, sufficient material is included so that this textbook can be used for a second additional three credit hour undergraduate course. Further, this text is also useful for practicing engineers as it presents the latest requirements of the ACI design code"

    Developments in Fiber-Reinforced Polymer (FRP) Composites in Civil Engineering - Nasim Uddin (Editor)
    ISBN: 9780857092342
    Publication Date: 2013-05-15
    The use of fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composite materials has had a dramatic impact on civil engineering techniques over the past three decades. FRPs are an ideal material for structural applications where high strength-to-weight and stiffness-to-weight ratios are required. Developments in fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites for civil engineering outlines the latest developments in fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites and their applications in civil engineering..

    Fire Safety Engineering Design of Structures, Third Edition - John A. Purkiss; Long-Yuan Li
    ISBN: 9781466585478
    Publication Date: 2013-12-05
    "Preface Since the publication of the second edition of this book, Structural Fire Safety Engineering has become a recognized engineering discipline and prompted the need for a third edition. Advances of the discipline also allowed updating of various sections such as material modelling. The intention of this text is to provide tools to fire safety engineers to enable them to design structures that can withstand the accidental effects of fires that result in total or partial destruction. Other than references to furnace testing (whose data are mainly historical), the authors concentrated on the European Design Codes. Designers should still be aware that any design code is subject to revision or amendment and that it is essential that the most recent edition of any guidance be used. Where this produces a discrepancy between this text and a code, the code must be considered the final arbiter. The large scale fire tests carried out at Cardington led to a reassessment of frame behaviour, especially in relation to composite steel-concrete frame structures in that whole structure performance markedly outweighs performances of single elements and connection details significantly affect both types of behaviours. In discussions of Eurocodes, national annexes were not considered directly. Any nationally determined parameters were taken at recommended values and not amended to conform to an individual country's national guidance. "

    Worked Examples for the Design of Concrete Structures to Eurocode - Threlfall
    ISBN: 9780415468190
    Publication Date: 2013-04-18
    "Packed with worked examples, this practical design guide illustrates how Eurocode 2 may be used in practice. A short introduction outlines the fundamental objectives of design and referring to relevant sources of information for loads and material properties. The book then presents complete and detailed designs of six archetypal structures, civil structures as well as buildings. This comprehensive treatment of the variety of structures to the new code make this a unique and invaluable work. Covers a range of structures, not just buildings. Deals fully with the analysis of the structure and the design and detailing of the members. Conforms to the latest standards and recommendations"
