Advanced Materials and Techniques for Reinforced Concrete Structures

Advanced Materials and Techniques for Reinforced Concrete Structures

The aim of this book is to present the most advanced materials and construc-
tion techniques used in the reinforced concrete structure industry. Because advanced

materials are growing parallel to the development of new structure systems, the
advantages and disadvantages of the different structure systems are very important
from durability, reliability, and construction points of view.
This book is intended to serve as a guide to junior and senior engineers who work
in design, construction, and maintenance of reinforced concrete structures to assist

them in choosing the most reasonable structure system, materials, method of con-
struction, and maintenance plan.

This book consists of three main approaches: the first chapters present ways to
control a project to achieve the owner’s target and discusses different loads that
affect the buildings from the point of view of the international codes. In addition,
the different structure systems that are used in traditional and high-rise buildings
will be presented with their advantages and disadvantages to assist the designer in

choosing the optimum structure system to meet stability, reliability, and architec-
tural requirements.
