Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete Design to EC2: The Complete Process 2nd Edition
Concrete is an integral part of twenty-first century structural engineering and an understanding of how to analyze and design concrete structures is a vital part of your training as a structural engineer. With eurocode legislation increasingly replacing British Standards it’s also important to know how this affects the way you can work with concrete. Newly revised to Eurocode 2, this second edition retains the original’s emphasis on qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of concrete structures. Now expanded, with a new chapter dedicated to case studies, worked examples and exercise examples it’s an even more comprehensive guide to conceptual design, analysis and detailed design of concrete structures. The book provides civil and structural engineering students with complete coverage of the analysis and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Great emphasis is placed on developing a qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of structures.

The only modern guide to all aspects of practical tunnel construction
Practical Tunnel Construction fills a void in the literature for a practical guide to tunnel construction. By taking the reader through a brief introduction and history to a comprehensive discussion of how the geological factors affect tunneling, the author covers the stages and technology that are common today without using complex equations. Written for the individual who does not have an extensive background in tunneling but who has to make tunneling decisions, the various tunneling methods are discussed to help in the determination of the appropriate method. The methods discussed are: hand mining, drill/blast, Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), New Austrian Tunnelling Method (NATM), Norwegian Method of Tunnelling (NMT), Roadheader, Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPBM), and Slurry Pressure Balance Machine (SPBM). This book focuses on driven tunnels.
This versatile handbook:
- Offers clear and accessible coverage of the state of the art in tunnel construction
- Introduces the essentials of design and construction of many types of tunnels, including TBM, EPB, Roadheader, NATM, drill and blast, and soft ground tunneling
- Provides nontechnical guidance on selecting the most appropriate tunneling methods for various situations
- Includes a brief history of tunneling and an introduction to geotechnical considerations
- Discusses tunnel access shaft construction, mucking methods, tunnel haulage, grout, water handling, and much more
Practical Tunnel Construction is an important resource for students, construction managers, tunnel designers, municipal engineers, or engineers who are employed by government agencies or corporations that are exploring the feasibility of planning and designing or building a tunnel.
About the Author
GARY B. HEMPHILL, PhD, PE, has more than thirty years of experience in the domestic and international construction industry. He has served as the project manager, designer, estimator, construction manager, field engineer, tunnel/shaft engineer, and project engineer on major projects throughout the world, including the Dallas Area Rapid Transit rail extension and the Taiwan High Speed Rail Project. He is the author of Blasting Operations.
Now in its Fifth Edition, this essential textbook has been used by thousands of students annually in schools of architecture, engineering, and construction technology. The bestselling reference focuses on the basic materials and methods used in building construction, emphasizing common construction systems such as light wood frames, masonry bearing walls, steel frames, and reinforced concrete. New introductory material on the processes, organization, constraints, and choices in construction offers a better look at the management of construction. New sections covering the building envelope uncover the secrets to designing enclosures for thermal insulation, vapor retarders, air barriers, and moisture control. The Fifth Edition also features more axonometric detail drawings and revised photographs for a thoroughly illustrated approach and the latest IBC 2006, CSI MasterFormat, ASTM references, and LEED information.
This text contains notes, worked examples, and solutions to tutorial questions that have been developed over a period of many years as a learning aid for undergraduate students studying Civil Engineering and/or Structural Engineering. Much of the material forms the basis for teaching within ENG469 Structural Analysis at Charles Darwin University (CDU), while the other material is similar in nature to that taught in Units in the earlier years of the BEng Degree in Civil Engineering at CDU. The text will be a useful learning and revision aid to students studying similar courses at other Universities in Australia and elsewhere. The production and format of this document have been developed from notes developed over many years, and have incorporated helpful suggestions from past students. This approach to teaching ‘difficult’ material to students has attracted favourable comments from students and academic staff alike.
