Hybrid Composite Precast Systems Book Review:

Hybrid Composite Precast Systems: Numerical Investigation to Construction focuses on the design and construction of novel composite precast frame systems that permit almost effortless erection and structural efficiency. The precast frame systems discussed in the book are similar to that of steel frames, but offer similar savings to concrete frames. The design of connections and detailed analysis of their structural behavior is discussed in detail. Fundamentals with regards to the post yield behavior of concrete and metal are also presented to illustrate how these two different materials are integrated together to remove individual material drawbacks. Readers are given a broad introduction to existing technologies that are then combined with a description of the construction methods the author proposes. This book will help the end users become familiar with the existing types of structural forms, not just the "Lego" type frame system that the author proposes. Discusses how traditional construction methods can be replaced by innovative hybrid composite precast frame systems that provide rapid and effortless erection capabilities and structural efficiency Contains several design examples using non-linear finite element analysis completed with Abaqus based-software Contains new milestone inventions in construction that offer structural engineering solutions using a novel, modularized hybrid frame system Provides information on structural testing that verifies the accuracy of the structural design

Natural Fibre Reinforced Polymer Composites Book Review:

Natural fibers and their composites have a long and important place in the history of human creativity and industry. Increasing consumer interest in "green" products made with sustainable materials, along with the rising cost of petroleum - the basic ingredient of synthetic fibers - have once again brought natural fibers and their composites to the fore. The renewed interest in natural fibers is only a few decades old. Thus, the pioneering work of current researchers in this new era of natural fiber composites will help to illuminate the path for future researchers as they explore new potentialities for natural fibers. Sabu Thomas and Laly Pothen, themselves leaders in the field, bring together cutting edge research by eminent scientists in Natural Fiber Reinforced Composites. Covering the latest research trends such as nano technology, the book will be a valuable resource for the natural fiber composite researcher.

Structural Engineering World Wide 1998 Book Review:

SEWC '98 is the first international congress to cover all aspects of structural engineering from technical to professional practice issues. The world is fast becoming one large community in engineering as well as in all other professions and structural engineers are involved in the design of all types of facilities in most countries around the world. Therefore, there is a vital need for engineers to understand the various cultures and governmental/environmental requirements in other countries so that safe, economical structures can be designed and built. This congress presented an excellent opportunity to learn more about what is happening now and what will happen in structural engineering throughout the world in the 21st century.

Seismic Design of Precast Concrete Building Structures Book Review:

The aim of this state-of-art report is to present current practices for use of precast and prestressed concrete in countries in seismic regions, to recommend good practice, and to discuss current developments. The report has been drafted by 30 contributors from nine different countries. This state-of-art report covers: state of the practice in various countries; advantages and disadvantages of incorporating precast reinforced and prestressed concrete in construction; lessons learned from previous earthquakes; construction concepts; design approaches; primary lateral load resisting systems (precast and prestressed concrete frame systems and structural walls including dual systems) diaphragms of precast and prestressed concrete floor units; modelling and analytical methods; gravity load resisting systems; foundations; and miscellaneous elements (shells, folded plates, stairs and architectural cladding panels). Design equations are reported where necessary, but the emphasis is on principles. Ordinary cast-in-place reinforced concrete is not considered in this report. This fib state-of-the-art report is intended to assist designers and constructors to provide safe and economical applications of structural precast concrete and at the same time to allow innovation in design and construction to continue. This Bulletin N° 27 was approved as an fib state-of-art report in autumn 2002 byfib Commission 7, Seismic design.

Hybrid FRP UHPFRC Composite Girders Part 1 Experimental and Numerical Approach Book Review:

Abstract: This paper presents experimental testing and numerical analysis of durable composite girder systems consisting of hybrid carbon/glass fiber-reinforced polymer (HFRP) I-girders and precast ultra-high-performance fiber-reinforced concrete (UHPFRC) slabs. Epoxy adhesive and/or bolt shear connectors (SCs) were used to transfer horizontal shear forces from the UHPFRC slabs to the HFRP I-girders. Push-out tests were performed to evaluate the shear interaction at the slab/girder interface. The results of the push-out tests were used to design five large-scale composite girders. The experimental variables included two types of bolt SCs (straight and inclined bolt SCs) and different slab geometries. The composite behavior between the HFRP I-girder and the UHPFRC slab was examined. The test results showed that the combined use of the bolt SCs and the epoxy adhesive was essential to achieve a full interaction between the HFRP I-girder and the UHPFRC slab. The use of the epoxy adhesive resulted in improving the strength and stiffness of the composite girders, reducing the stress concentration around the bolt-holes, and increasing the shear strength of the bolt SCs. The girders with the inclined bolt SCs showed a more ductile behavior than those with the straight headed bolt SCs. A three-dimensional finite element (FE) analysis of the HFRP-UHPFRC composite girder was carried out that considered slip effects at the slab/girder interface and the nonlinear behavior of the bolt SCs. Comparisons between the experimental results and the FE analysis were performed and a fairly good agreement was found. A companion paper shows derivations of analytical equations to predict composite behaviors of the HFRP-UHPFRC girders with varying levels of interaction at the slab/girder interface.

Mechanics of Fiber and Textile Reinforced Cement Composites Book Review:

Among all building materials, concrete is the most commonly used-and there is a staggering demand for it. However, as we strive to build taller structures with improved seismic resistance or durable pavement with an indefinite service life, we require materials with better performance than the conventional materials used today.

Proceedings of Italian Concrete Days 2018 Book Review:

This book gathers the best peer-reviewed papers presented at the Italian Concrete Days national conference, held in Lecco, Italy, on June 14-15, 2018. The conference topics encompass the aspects of design, execution, rehabilitation and control of concrete structures, with particular reference to theory and modeling, applications and realizations, materials and investigations, technology and construction techniques. The contributions amply demonstrate that today’s structural concrete applications concern not only new constructions, but more and more rehabilitation, conservation, strengthening and seismic upgrading of existing premises, and that requirements cover new aspects within the frame of sustainability, including environmental friendliness, durability, adaptability and reuse of works and / or materials. As such the book represents an invaluable, up-to-the-minute tool, providing an essential overview of structural concrete, as well as all new materials with cementitious matrices.
