Structural Concrete examines the behavior of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures under working load and ultimate load conditions.

This eight-chapter text deals first with the analysis of concrete structures as a particular branch of structural mechanics. Other chapters explore the empirical methods and the practical design and detailing procedures. Considerable chapters describe the mechanical behavior of structural concrete, with a particular emphasis on the elastic behavior. The final chapters examine the behavior of continuous beams, frames, and slabs. These chapters also look into the models for structural concrete.

This book is intended primarily to undergraduate civil engineering students.
