about this item
This resource for engineers covers traditional and new systems for the design, construction, and maintenance of reinforced concrete structures. Systems are evaluated, and materials and construction techniques for reinforced concrete structures are described, including high strength, high-performance materials and self-compacted concrete. There is also discussion of different loads that affect buildings from the point of view of international codes, as well as the different structural systems used in traditional and high-rise buildings and how to choose between them. One chapter is devoted to construction techniques used in hot climate regions. Final chapters deal with structure integrity management and the concrete industry. B&w photos are included throughout. This second edition reflects international codes such as Eurocode, Egyptian Code, British Standard, and American Specifications (ACI). Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
