PDF Free Download | Reinforced Concrete Beams, Columns, and Frames by Jostein Hellesland, Noël Challamel, Charles Casandjian, Christophe Lanos.
The authors have written two books on the theoretical and practical design of reinforced concrete beams, columns and frame structures. The book entitled Reinforced Concrete Beams, Columns and Frames – Mechanics and Design deals with the fundamental aspects of the mechanics and design of reinforced concrete in general, related to both the Serviceability Limit State (SLS) and the Ultimate Limit State (ULS). This book, entitled Reinforced Concrete Beams, Columns and Frames – Section and Slender Member Analysis, deals with more advanced ULS aspects, along with instability and second-order analysis aspects. The two books are complementary, and, indeed, could have been presented together in one book. However, for practical reasons, it has proved more convenient to present the material in two separate books with the same preface in both books.
This book is aimed at Masters-level students, engineers, researchers and teachers in the field of reinforced concrete design. Most of the books in this area are very practical or code-oriented, whereas this book is more theoretically based, using rigorous mathematics and mechanics tools.
- Advanced Design at Ultimate Limit State (ULS).
- Slender Compression Members – Mechanics and Design.
- Approximate Analysis Methods.
Appendix 1. Cardano’s Method.
Appendix 2. Steel Reinforcement Table.
The book tries to distinguish between what belongs to the structural design philosophy of such structural elements (related to strength of materials arguments) and what belongs to the design rule aspects associated with specific characteristic data (for the material or loading parameters).
