Limit Analysis and Concrete Plasticity, Second Edition covers the most relevant topics related to plastic design methods, providing a reliable and superior alternative to existing empirical methods.
Fully updated and containing more extensive coverage, this second edition includes numerical methods and computer code for solving problems, incorporating methods into Eurocode 2 - the common concrete standard for the whole of Europe.
This edition:
Emphasizes practical design, treating almost all the elementary concrete mechanics problems in such a way that the solutions may be directly applied by the designer
Details the fundamental problems associated with so-called effectiveness factors
Covers many new solutions to specific problems, including concentrated forces, shear walls and deep beams, beams with normal forces and torsional moments, and solutions dealing with membrane effects in slabs
Simplifies the treatment of shear in beams and slabs without shear reinforcement or with a modicum of shear reinforcement
Extends the chapters on joints and bond strength, showing how plastic theory offers reasonable solutions for most structural problems in reinforced concrete
Limit Analysis and Concrete Plasticity explains the basic principles of plasticity theory and its application to the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, providing a thorough understanding of the subject, rather than simply applying current design codes. This scientific understanding of the subject enables the design student or engineer to solve problems more effectively and safely.
