FRP Composites for Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Structures Book Review:

High strength fibre composites (FRPs) have been used with civil structures since the 1980s, mostly in the repair, strengthening and retrofitting of concrete structures. This has attracted considerable research, and the industry has expanded exponentially in the last decade. Design guidelines have been developed by professional organizations in a number of countries including USA, Japan, Europe and China, but until now designers have had no publication which provides practical guidance or accessible coverage of the fundamentals. This book fills this void. It deals with the fundamentals of composites, and basic design principles, and provides step-by-step guidelines for design. Its main theme is the repair and retrofit of un-reinforced, reinforced and prestressed concrete structures using carbon, glass and other high strength fibre composites. In the case of beams, the focus is on their strengthening for flexure and shear or their stiffening. The main interest with columns is the improvement of their ductility; and both strengthening and ductility improvement of un-reinforced structures are covered. Methods for evaluating the strengthened structures are presented. Step by step procedures are set out, including flow charts, for the various structural components, and design examples and practice problems are used to illustrate. As infrastructure ages worldwide, and its demolition and replacement becomes less of an option, the need for repair and retrofit of existing facilities will increase. Besides its audience of design professionals, this book suits graduate and advanced undergraduate students.

Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Design to EC2 Book Review:

Concrete is an integral part of twenty-first century structural engineering, and an understanding of how to analyze and design concrete structures is a vital part of training as a structural engineer. With Eurocode legislation increasingly replacing British Standards, it’s also important to know how this affects the way you can work with concrete. Newly revised to Eurocode 2, this second edition retains the original’s emphasis on qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of concrete structures. Now expanded, with a new chapter dedicated to case studies, worked examples, and exercise examples, it is an even more comprehensive guide to conceptual design, analysis, and detailed design of concrete structures. The book provides civil and structural engineering students with complete coverage of the analysis and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Great emphasis is placed on developing a qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of structures.

Principles of Reinforced Concrete Book Review:

Principle of Reinforced Concrete introduces the main properties of structural concrete and its mechanical behavior under various conditions as well as all aspects of the combined function of reinforcement and concrete. Based on the experimental investigation, the variation regularity of mechanical behavior, working mechanism, and calculation method are presented for the structural member under various internal forces. After examining the basic principle and analysis method of reinforced concrete, the book covers some extreme circumstances, including fatigue load, earthquake, explosion, high temperature (fire accident), and durability damage, and the special responses and analysis methods of its member under these conditions. This work is valuable as a textbook for post-graduates, and can be used as a reference for university teachers and under-graduates in the structural engineering field. It is also useful for structural engineers engaged in scientific research, design, or construction. Focuses on the principles of reinforced concrete, providing professional and academic readers with a single volume reference Experimental data enables readers to make full use of the theory presented The mechanical behavior of both concrete and reinforcement materials, plus the combined function of both are covered, enabling readers to understand the behaviors of reinforced concrete structures and their members Covers behavior of the materials and members under normal and extreme conditions

Inspection and Maintenance of Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Structures Book Review:

The vast extent of the investment in concrete structures in modern times has emphasized the need to maintain these structures in a systematic manner, so that they retain their structural integrity and full usefulness. Such maintenance must be preceded by regular and thorough inspection. This Guide to Good Practice describes the many types of damage - slight or more serious - which may be discovered and the equipment used to carry out inspections. Suggested inspection intervals, related to the severity of loadings and environmental conditions, are given.

FIP/CEB Recommendations tor the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structural members tor fire resistance Book Review:

The first draft recommendations for the design both of reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete structural members in regard to fire resistance were presented for discussion at the Sixth FIP Congress held in Prague in 1970 at an open meeting of the FIP Commission on Fire Resistance under the Chairmanship of Professor K. Kordina. These have been subsequently discussed and elaborated at meetings of the Commission in Paris, Brunswick and London and a final draft was agreed at the Seventh FIP Congress held in New York in 1974 for the publication to include both normal dense and lightweight concrete. The inclusion of reinforced concrete has been at the special request of CEB who had expressed a wish for detailed recommendations to be available for inclusion in their next revision of the CEB/FIP International Recommendations for the design of Concrete Structures. The recommendations give detailed advice to the practising engineer on how to design structural elements to withstand the standard fire loads for stated periods which may be prescribed by building authorities on a national scale. The values given are safe values based on the results of research and testing on individual elements in a standard furnace. Analytica! methods of assessment of fire resistance are being developed which take into account the interaction of structural members and these may well lead to further economy. Further investigations of the effects of continuity and end-restraint by the Commission may enable these recommendations to be revised in the future.

Strengthening of Reinforced Concrete Structures Book Review:

The in situ rehabilitation or upgrading of reinforced concrete members using bonded steel plates is an effective, convenient and economic method of improving structural performance. However, disadvantages inherent in the use of steel have stimulated research into the possibility of using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) materials in its place, providing a non-corrosive, more versatile strengthening system. This book presents a detailed study of the flexural strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete members using fibre reinforces polymer composite plates. It is based to a large extent on material developed or provided by the consortium which studied the technology of plate bonding to upgrade structural units using carbon fibre / polymer composite materials. The research and trial tests were undertaken as part of the ROBUST project, one of several ventures in the UK Government's DTI-LINK Structural Composites Programme. The book has been designed for practising structural and civil engineers seeking to understand the principles and design technology of plate bonding, and for final year undergraduate and postgraduate engineers studying the principles of highway and bridge engineering and structural engineering. Detailed study of the flexural strengthening of reinforced and prestressed concrete members using fibre reinforced polymer composites Contains in-depth case histories
