CAIRO BOOKS's Description
From China to Kuala Lumpur to Dubai to downtown New York, amazing buildings
and unusual structures create attention with the uniqueness of their design.
While attractive to developers and investors, the safe and economic design and
construction of reinforced concrete buildings can sometimes be problematic.
Advanced Materials and Techniques for Reinforced Concrete Structures discusses
how to create safety and economy in design, construction, and maintenance
operations plans. The author presents up-to-date data on advanced materials and
techniques, exploring the advantages and disadvantages of different structure
systems in durability, reliability, construction, and architectural
Highlighting the competitive nature of the business, the author delineates the
statistical parameters that govern quality control in concrete construction
projects, defining complicated statistical terms and the theoretical background
needed for determining and meeting quality control criteria. He begins with a
discussion of how to control the project to meet the owner’s requirements and
includes coverage of the international codes for different loads that affect
buildings. The book details traditional and emerging materials used in concrete
technology such as high-strength, high-performance, and self-compacted concrete
as well as those used in all construction stages for various climates. It
concludes with a description of a risk-based maintenance plan for reinforced
A guidebook and handbook, this resource provides the information required for
decision-making on structure systems, materials, construction methods, and
maintenance plans. Filled with case studies, it delineates practical
applications and up-to-date methods for designing and constructing buildings
