Multi-Storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures Book Review:

Precast reinforced and prestressed concrete frames provide ahigh strength, stable, durable and robust solution for anymulti-storey structure, and are widely regarded as a high quality,economic and architecturally versatile technology for theconstruction of multi-storey buildings. The resulting buildingssatisfy a wide range of commercial and industrial needs. Precastconcrete buildings behave in a different way to those where theconcrete is cast in-situ, with the components subject to differentforces and movements. These factors are explored in detail in thesecond edition of Multi-Storey Precast Concrete FramedStructures, providing a detailed understanding of theprocedures involved in precast structural design. This new editionhas been fully updated to reflect recent developments, and includesmany structural calculations based on EUROCODE standards. These areshown in parallel with similar calculations based on BritishStandards to ensure the designer is fully aware of the differencesrequired in designing to EUROCODE standards.

Tailor Made Concrete Structures Book Review:

In recent years knowledge of concrete and concrete structures has increased, as has its applications. New types of concrete challenged scientists and engineers, and ecological constraints encouraged the implementation of life cycle design of concrete structures, moving the focus more and more to maintenance and uprating of structures. And since buildings are not only designed for safety and serviceability, but also for flexibility and adaptability, the design of performance based materials and structures has become more and more important. Tailor Made Concrete Structures. New Solutions for our Society comprises the proceedings of the International fib Symposium 2008 (Amsterdam, 19-22 May 2008), and considers these new perspectives and developments, including sections on new materials (i.e. fire resisting concrete, ultra-high performance fibered concrete, textile reinforced concrete, bacteria-based self healing concrete) and codes for the future (i.e. the American P2P Iniative, fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) applications in construction, Codes for SFRC Structures). The book includes contributions from leading scientists and professionals in concrete and concrete structures worldwide, and covers: – Life cycle design – Design strategies for the future – Underground structures – Monitoring and Inspection – Diagnosis – Innovative materials – Codes for the future – Modifying and adapting structures – Architectural Concrete – Developing a modern infrastructure – Designing structures against extreme loads – Increasing the speed of construction Tailor Made Concrete Structures.

Precast Concrete in Mixed Construction Book Review:

The purpose of this publication is to show how precast concrete may be mixed in combination with other structural materials to maximise overall building performance. The other materials are: cast insitu concrete, reinforced and post-tensioned, structural steelwork, timber and glue-laminated timber, masonry in brickwork and blockwork, glass and glazing. The aim is to provide a companion volume to composite Floor Structures [FIP, 1998] and to show some of the many other ways that precast concrete can be used to advantage with other materials. The term mixed precast construction is used to describe these other combinations. The intention is not to discuss design calculations - that is for a future 'fib Guide to good practice'. Instead, the bulletin is meant as a 'State-of-art' publication showing photographs, sketches and details of precast concrete with other materials. There are no design equations, although some technical information on how to combine the materials, e.g. bearings, connections, tolerances, thermal and shrinkage effects, etc., is included if appropriate. Thus, the document focuses on the use of mixed construction in multistorey buildings, offices, housing, grandstands, parking garages, and industrial warehouses, etc. i. e. on precast concrete as the main construction material and looks at the manner in which other materials can be integrated. Chapter by chapter the strengths and weakness of each material studied are assessed as part of the total building design. In some cases it is obvious that the load carrying performance of one material outweighs another. In other cases aspects such as thermal, fire, vibration, fatigue, creep, acoustic, seismic and visual characteristics, and the geographical local availability of that material, may be critical. A world-wide survey, presented in Table 1.1, found that precast concrete is a universal building material, but mixed construction is limited mostly to developed countries where structural steelwork and types of timber, such as glue-laminated timber, is readily available. In addition there may be design, detailing, production, transportation, erection and maintenance limitations, which do or do not favour mixed construction.
