This book examines the corrosion of reinforced concrete from a practical point of view, highlights protective design and repair procedures, and presents ongoing maintenance protocols. Updated throughout, this new edition adds additional information on concrete repair using Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers (CFRP), and reviews new examples of the effects of corrosion on both prestressed and reinforced concrete structures. It also examines economic analysis procedures and the probability of structural failures to define structural risk assessment, and covers precautions and recommendations for protecting reinforced concrete structures from corrosion based on the latest codes and specifications.

Corrosion of reinforcing steel is now recognized as the major cause of degradation of concrete structures in many parts of the world. Despite this, infrastructure expenditure is being unreasonably decreased by sequestration and the incredible shrinking discretionary budget. All components of our infrastructure including highways, airports, water supply, waste treatment, energy supply, and power generation require significant investment and are subjected to degradation by corrosion, which significantly reduces the service life, reliability, functionality of structures and equipment, and safety. Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Structures provides a comprehensive review of the subject, in addition to recent advances in research and technological developments, from reinforcing materials to measurement techniques and modelling. This book contains not only all the important aspects in the field of corrosion of steel reinforced concrete but also discusses new topics and future trends. Part One of the book tackles theoretical concepts of corrosion of steel in concrete structures. The second part moves on to analyse the variety of reinforcing materials and concrete, including stainless steel and galvanized steel. Part Three covers measurements and evaluations, such as electrochemical techniques and acoustic emission. Part Four reviews protection and maintenance methods, whilst the final section analyses modelling, latest developments and future trends in the field. The book is essential reading for researchers, practitioners and engineers who are involved in materials characterisation and corrosion of steel in concrete structures. Provides comprehensive coverage on a broad range of topics related to the corrosion of steel bars in concrete Discusses the latest measuring methods and advanced modeling techniques Reviews the range of reinforcing materials and types of concrete

Unified Design of Steel Structures, 3rd edition, continues the unified LRFD and ASD approach to teaching structural steel design established in the first two editions. It addresses the design of steel structures for buildings as governed by the ANSI/AISC 360-16 Specification for Structural Steel Buildings, published by the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC). It is intended primarily as a text for a first course in steel design for civil and architectural engineers. Such a course usually occurs in the third or fourth year of an engineering program. The book can also be used in a second, building-oriented course in steel design, depending on the coverage in the first course. In addition to its use as a textbook, it provides a good review for practicing engineers looking to learn the provisions of the latest specification or to convert their practice from any of the old specifications to the new specification. Users are expected to have a firm knowledge of statics and strength of materials and have easy access to the AISC Steel Construction Manual, 15th Edition. All examples that rely on LRFD and ASD provisions are fully presented, even if it means some duplication, so that regardless of approach being taught, there will be no need to refer to the other approach example. All homework problems that could be LRFD or ASD are presented both ways so that the instructor may choose the approach they want the student to follow. Subjects addressed include: principles of limit states design; load factors, resistance factors, and safety factors; tension member design; column or compression member design; beam or bending member design; plate girder design; design of beam-columns or members subjected to combined axial load and bending; bracing member design; composite member design; connection basics including bolts, welds, and connecting elements; design of shear connections, light bracing connections and direct bearing connections; design of moment connections; and basics of seismic design. Unified Design of Steel Structures, 3rd edition, also features multi-chapter problems and a new Integrated Design Project. Instructors can add a few, selected problems throughout the term, or include a full project, design of a four-story office building. Either way, all of the tools are here to help students learn how to apply the AISC Specification to the design of a structural steel building. Sample pages from the AISC Steel Construction Manual can be found throughout the book. Students can easily reference design aids and quickly learn how to use them. Keywords: steel design, beam design, column design, beam-column design, composite design, connection design, AISC

Comprehensive coverage of the background and design requirements for plastic and seismic design of steel structures Thoroughly revised throughout, Ductile Design of Steel Structures, Second Edition, reflects the latest plastic and seismic design provisions and standards from the American Institute of Steel Construction (AISC) and the Canadian Standard Association (CSA). The book covers steel material, cross-section, component, and system response for applications in plastic and seismic design, and provides practical guidance on how to incorporate these principles into structural design. Three new chapters address buckling-restrained braced frame design, steel plate shear wall design, and hysteretic energy dissipating systems and design strategies. Eight other chapters have been extensively revised and expanded, including a chapter presenting the basic seismic design philosophy to determine seismic loads. Self-study problems at the end of each chapter help reinforce the concepts presented. Written by experts in earthquake-resistant design who are active in the development of seismic guidelines, this is an invaluable resource for students and professionals involved in earthquake engineering or other areas related to the analysis and design of steel structures. COVERAGE INCLUDES: Structural steel properties Plastic behavior at the cross-section level Concepts, methods, and applications of plastic analysis Building code seismic design philosophy Design of moment-resisting frames Design of concentrically braced frames Design of eccentrically braced frames Design of steel energy dissipating systems Stability and rotation capacity of steel beams
