Reinforced Concrete Slabs
Comprehensive, up-to-date coverage of reinforced concrete slabs-from leading authorities in the field.
Offering an essential background for a thorough understanding of building code requirements and design procedures for slabs, Reinforced Concrete Slabs, Second Edition provides a full treatment of today's approaches to reinforced concrete slab analysis and design.
Now brought up to date with a wealth of new material on computer optimization, the equivalent frame method, lateral load analysis, and other current topics, the new edition of this classic text begins with a general discussion of slab analysis and design, followed by an exploration of key methods (equivalent frame, direct design, and strip methods) and theories (elastic, lower bound, and yield line theories). Later chapters discuss other important issues, including shear strength, serviceability, membrane action, and fire resistance.
Comprehensive and accessible, Reinforced Concrete Slabs, Second Edition appeals to a broad range of readers-from senior and graduate students in civil and architectural engineering to practicing structural engineers, architects, contractors, construction engineers, and consultants.
