This book comprehensively elucidates the design and construction of prestressed concrete structures and illustrates the various prestressing methods and systems. All the necessary background knowledge is provided for the design and construction of safe and durable prestressed concrete structures. The numerous innovations of the last few years in analysing and detailing prestressed concrete structures as well as in the prestressing systems themselves required an update from the first edition of this book. This edition also incorporates the recent changes in the codes DIN 1045–1 and DIN–Fachbericht 102 as well as suggestions from practical experience.
