Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Third Edition

Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Third Edition 

K. Dirk Bondy

Preference :

Writing this book has been a labor of love and it actually began back in the mid-1990s, though I didn’t realize it at the time. Much of the early chapters were written when I was teaching Prestressed Concrete Design at California Polytechnic State University at Pomona. I was a young man at the time, but I was lucky enough to have access to some of the greatest post-tensioned concrete engineers in the world. Over the years Bryan and I have learned the art of designing and detailing post-tensioned concrete from men such as my father, Ross Ellena, Ed Workman, Merrill Walstad, Florian Barth, and Chris Deetz. We both owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to all these men for sharing their wisdom. I also want to acknowledge Trailer Martin, C.K. Allen, Bob Englekirk, and Jim Cagley who were friends of my father before I even knew I wanted to be a structural engineer and offered opportunities and served as role models for me throughout my developing career.
