The design of structures in general, and prestressed concrete structures in particular, requires considerably more information than is contained in building codes. A sound understanding of structural behaviour at all stages of loading is essential. This textbook presents a detailed description and explanation of the behaviour of prestressed concrete members and structures, both at service loads and at ultimate loads, and in doing so, provides a comprehensive and up-to-date guide to structural design.

Much of the text is based on first principles and relies only on the principles of mechanics and the properties of concrete and steel, with numerous worked examples. However, where the design requirements are code specific, this book refers to the provisions of the Australian Standard for Concrete Structures (AS3600-2009) and, where possible, the notation is the same as in AS3600-2009. A parallel volume is written to Eurocode 2, the European Standard for the Design of Concrete Structures.

The text runs from an introduction to the fundamentals to in-depth treatments of more advanced topics in modern prestressed concrete structures. It suits senior undergraduate and graduate students, and also practising engineers who want a comprehensive guide to the design of prestressed concrete structures. It retains the clear and concise explanations and the easy-to-read style of the first edition, but the content has been extensively reorganised and considerably expanded and updated. New chapters cover design procedures, actions, and loads; prestressing systems and construction requirements; and connections and detailing. The topic of serviceability is developed extensively throughout.

The authors have been researching and teaching the behaviour and design of prestressed concrete structures for more than 35 years, and this updated edition of the book reflects this wealth of experience. The work has also gained much from Ian Gilbert’s active and long-time involvement in the development of the Australian Standards for Concrete Structures (AS3600-2009) and Concrete Bridges (AS5100.5-2012).

About the Author:

Raymond Ian Gilbert is deputy director of the UNSW Centre for Infrastructure Engineering and Safety and has more than 40 years of experience in structural design. He is a specialist in the analysis and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Professor Gilbert has taught successive generations of civil engineering students in Australia on subjects related to structural engineering, ranging from statics and structural analysis to the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. His research activities are in the field of concrete structures, with a particular interest in serviceability. Professor Gilbert has published six books, including ‘Structural Analysis: Principles, Methods and Modelling’ and ‘Time-Dependent Behaviour of Concrete Structures’ which are also published by CRC Press, and more than 350 technical papers and reports. He was awarded Honorary Life Membership of the Concrete Institute of Australia in 2011.

Neil Colin Mickleborough is the professor of civil engineering and the director of the Center for Engineering Education Innovation at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. He has been actively involved in the research, development, and teaching of prestressed and reinforced concrete, structural analysis, and tall building and bridge design in Australia, Asia, and the Middle East for the past 30 years. He has acted as an expert design consultant on tall buildings and long span bridge projects in both Dubai and Hong Kong. In addition, he is a chartered structural engineer and a Fellow of the Hong Kong Institution of Engineers.

Gianluca Ranzi is an ARC Future Fellow, associate professor and director of the Centre for Advanced Structural Engineering at the University of Sydney. Gianluca’s research interests range from the field of structural engineering, with focus on computational mechanics and the service behavior of composite steel-concrete and concrete structures, to architectural science.

Review:

"... outstanding in every way. It covers both the fundamentals and the application of prestressed concrete. Clear numerous Examples are helpful to both young readers and professional engineers. Extensive list of references at the end of chapters are useful for further reading."

―Professor Vijaya Rangan, Curtin University

This book is certainly more than a commentary on a code; it is a wide ranging and thorough study of its subject, presenting the material that we have been familiar with for half a century with a concentration on structural forms that are in common use now. This is a mature book and has much to offer to the practicing engineer and academic as well as students.

―Howard Taylor, Magazine of Concrete Research

"A very well written book."

―Muhammad Hadi, University of Wollongong
