This updated 4th edition integrates the provisions of the 2019 ACI Building Code in text and examples; offers an extensive treatment of bridge analysis and design according to the 2020 AASHTO LRFD Specifications; includes a large number of logical design flow charts and detailed design examples; provides an extensive updated bibliography; includes an appendix with answers to study problems; uses consistent notation as well as consistent sign convention; and uses dual units (US and Sl) for key equations and reference data. The book contains sufficient material to cover four targeted courses dealing with: a) prestressed concrete fundamentals and applications, b) advanced PC analysis and design, c) post-tensioned concrete structures (including continuous beams, one- and two-way slab systems and slabs on ground), and d) PC bridges. Unique topics addressed include slenderness effects in column, optimum design of water tanks, prestress losses by the time-steps procedure, anchorage design by strut-and-tie modeling, and design for shear and torsion. The material is presented in 16 chapters, with 1432 pages, and more than 650 illustrations and photographs. This book is written primarily to serve as a thorough teaching text, a comprehensive source of information, and a basic reference. It is intended for advanced students, professional engineers, and researchers. It emphasizes the fundamental concepts of analysis and design of prestressed concrete structures, providing the user with the essential knowledge and tools to deal with everyday design problems, while developing the necessary critical thinking and training to tackle more complex problems with confidence.
