This book is popular among engineering teachers, students, and those who are practicing structural engineering. This book starts off with an introduction that explains the basics about the topic. It also has chapters on materials for prestressed concrete, prestressing systems, analysis of prestress and bending stresses, losses of prestress, and deflection of prestressed concrete members. It also includes chapters on flexural strength of prestressed concrete sections, shear and torsional resistance of prestressed concrete members, transfer of prestressed in pretensioned members, anchorage zone stresses in post-tensioned members, limit-state design criteria for prestressed concrete members, and design of prestressed concrete sections.
It comprises of chapters on design of pretensioned and post-tensioned flexural members, composite construction of prestressed and in situ concrete, statistically indeterminate structures, prestressed concrete and pipe, prestressed concrete slab and grid floors, and prestressed concrete shell and folded plate structures. It also includes chapters on prestressed concrete bridges, trusses, and construction, maintenance and rehabilitation of prestressed concrete bridges, and many more.
