Civil and structural engineers as well as final year undergraduate and postgraduate students of civil and structural engineering will all find this book to be thorough overview of this important construction technology.
Kim S. Elliott BTech, PhD, CEng, MICE is a self-employed consultant to the precast industry in the UK and Malaysia. He was Senior Lecturer in the School of Civil Engineering at Nottingham University, UK, from 1987 to 2010, and was formerly at Trent Concrete Structures Ltd, one of the UK’s leading precast concrete manufacturers. Since 1987, he has been active in research into the behaviour of precast concrete structures and has published more than 120 papers and 6 text books. He is a member of the FIB UK Group and FIB Commission on Prefabrication.
Colin K. Jolly MSc, PhD, CEng, MICE, FIStructE is a self-employed consultant to Cranfield University and the construction industry. He was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Southampton University, UK, from 1978 to 1999, and in the Engineering Systems Department at the Royal Military College of Science (now the Defence Academy) from 2000-2006, having formerly worked for Consulting Engineers in the UK and Oman. Since 1975, he has been active in research into the behaviour of a wide variety of composite materials in structures, and has published more than 280 papers and industrial reports. He is a member of the UK Expert Group providing recommendations for the evolution of the European loading code EN 1990.
This practical reference discusses the types of low-rise building structural systems, outlines the design process, and explains how to determine structural loadings and load paths pertinent to low-rise buildings. Characteristics and properties of materials used in the construction of cold-formed steel, reinforced masonry, and structural timber buildings are described along with design requirements. The book also provides an overview of noncomposite and composite open-web joist floor systems. Design code requirements referenced by the 2009 International Building Code are used throughout. This is an ideal resource for structural engineering students, professionals, and those preparing for licensing examinations.

Reinforced Concrete Structures: Analysis and Design, Second Edition offers clear explanations of the underlying principles behind reinforced concrete design and provides easy-to-follow analysis, design, and construction techniques. This edition has been thoroughly updated to conform to the new ACI 2014 Building Code.
This authoritative resource discusses reinforced concrete members and provides techniques for sizing the cross section, calculating the required amount of reinforcement, and detailing the reinforcement. Brand-new information is included on earthquake design and detailing. Easy-to-follow design procedures and illuminating flowcharts guide you through complex code requirements.Concisely explains every provision in the 2014 ACI 318 Structural Concrete code Features a new chapter on design and detailing for earthquake effects Solved problems and real-world examples demonstrate each provision’s proper application Author has written numerous technical publications on the design of reinforced concrete and load determination
The third edition of Barry's Advanced Construction of Buildings expands and deepens your understanding of construction technology. It covers the construction of larger-scale buildings (primarily residential, commercial and industrial) constructed with load bearing frames, supported by chapters on fit-out and second fix, lifts and escalators, off-site construction and a new chapter on building obsolescence and revitalisation. Functional and performance requirements of the main building elements are emphasised throughout, as is building efficiency and meeting the challenges of limiting the environmental impact of buildings. You will find the text fully up to date with the latest building regulations and construction technologies.
The new edition, with supporting material at www.wiley.com/go/barrysintroduction, is an ideal information source for developing a wider and deeper understanding of construction technology.
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.
