Reinforced Concrete Design to Eurocode 2 (Hardcover) (Giandomenico Toniolo & Marco di Prisco)
about this item
This textbook describes the basic mechanical features of plain concrete and explains the main resistance mechanisms activated in reinforced concrete structures when they are subjected to axial force, bending moment, shear, eccentric compression, pre- and post-tensioning, and torsion. It presents a complete set of limit-state design criteria of the modern theory of reinforced concrete, incorporating the final version of the official Eurocode 2: references to the various sections of the EN design codes of concrete structures are provided throughout the book to facilitate its use by students and practitioners.
The book examines methodological more than notional aspects of the presented topics, focusing on the verifications of assumptions, the rigorousness of the analysis, and the consequent degree of reliability of results. Each chapter develops an organic topic, which is eventually illustrated by examples in each final paragraph containing the relevant numerical applications. These practical end-of-chapter appendices and intuitive flow charts ensure a smooth learning experience.
The book will be an ideal learning resource for students of structural design and analysis courses in civil engineering, building construction, and architecture, as well as a valuable reference for concrete structural design professionals in practice.
