About this Textbook

This textbook describes the basic mechanical features of concrete and explains the main resistant mechanisms activated in the reinforced concrete structures and foundations when subjected to centred and eccentric axial force, bending moment, shear, torsion and prestressing. It presents a complete set of limit-state design criteria of the modern theory of RC incorporating principles and rules of the final version of the official Eurocode 2. 

This textbook examines methodological more than notional aspects of the presented topics, focusing on the verifications of assumptions, the rigorousness of the analysis and the consequent degree of reliability of results. Each chapter develops an organic topic, which is eventually illustrated by examples in each final paragraph containing the relative numerical applications. These practical end-of-chapter appendices and intuitive flow-charts ensure a smooth learning experience. 

The book stands as an ideal learning resource for students of structural design and analysis courses in civil engineering, building construction and architecture, as well as a valuable reference for concrete structural design professionals in practice.

About the authors

Giandomenico Toniolo was full professor of Structural Analysis and Design at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. Besides his academic tasks and a professional engagement as structural designer, he carried out a long activity in regulations and standards in Italy and Europe, joining the National Commission for Technical Standards for Constructions and also several committees of the European Committee for Standardization CEN such as CEN/TC250/SC2 for Eurocode 2 (concrete structures), CEN/TC250/SC8 for Eurocode 8 (seismic code), CEN/TC229 for precast concrete products. Within this latter committee he chaired for many years the WG1 on precast concrete structural products. He has been the coordinator of important European research projects on seismic design of concrete precast structures. He has also developed an extensive editorial activity by authoring many scientific works and a number of university textbooks.

 

Marco di Prisco is full professor of Structural Analysis and Design at Politecnico di Milano, Italy. His research focuses on constitutive modelling for plain and fiber reinforced concrete, theoretical and experimental analysis on reinforcement-concrete interaction and mechanical behaviour of R/C and P/C structural elements. As member of SAG5 Technical Committee for New Model Code, he has been in charge of the chapters on FRC.
