Precast Concrete Structures By Kim Elliott.pdf BEST
This second edition of Precast Concrete Structures introduces the conceptual design ideas for the prefabrication of concrete structures and presents a number of worked examples that translate designs from BS 8110 to Eurocode EC2, before going into the detail of the design, manufacture, and construction of precast concrete multi-storey buildings. Detailed structural analysis of precast concrete and its use is provided and some details are presented of recent precast skeletal frames of up to forty storeys.

The theory is supported by numerous worked examples to Eurocodes and European Product Standards for precast reinforced and prestressed concrete elements, composite construction, joints and connections and frame stability, together with extensive specifications for precast concrete structures. The book is extensively illustrated with over 500 photographs and line drawings.
"Precast Concrete Structures provides complete guidance for the analysis and design of precast concrete structures. This new edition brings all the material up to date with state of art of research, codes of practice and technology. Nevertheless, the author maintains his practical approach with many examples. For these reasons, Dr Elliotts book is a worldwide reference for academics, professionals and the precast industry."
"Professor Elliott draws upon his many years of research, experience, and expertise to introduce conceptual design ideas for the prefabrication of concrete structures and presents a number of worked examples of designs to Eurocode EC2, before going into the detail of the design, manufacture, and construction of precast concrete multi-storey buildings... "Precast Concrete Structures" is a critically important and core addition to professional and academic library Architectural Studies collections."
Precast reinforced and prestressed concrete frames provide a high strength, stable, durable and robust solution for any multi-storey structure, and are widely regarded as a high quality, economic and architecturally versatile technology for the construction of multi-storey buildings. The resulting buildings satisfy a wide range of commercial and industrial needs. Precast concrete buildings behave in a different way to those where the concrete is cast in-situ, with the components subject to different forces and movements. These factors are explored in detail in the second edition of Multi-Storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures, providing a detailed understanding of the procedures involved in precast structural design. This new edition has been fully updated to reflect recent developments, and includes many structural calculations based on EUROCODE standards. These are shown in parallel with similar calculations based on British Standards to ensure the designer is fully aware of the differences required in designing to EUROCODE standards.
Waterproof concrete structures have proved their worth on numerous occasions in recent years and are to be found in many areas of structural engineering, building and industrial construction, river and marine works and civil engineering. The current state of knowledge about waterproof concrete construction is described in detail in this special issue. The specialist articles cover all the essential fields, starting with the design basics, concrete technology and construction considerations, and questions regarding the design of jointing sealing systems, waterproof basements and double wall elements to the waterproofing of cracks and defects and legal questions.
