More About This Title Reinforced Concrete Structures


Sets out basic theory for the behavior of reinforced concrete structural elements and structures in considerable depth. Emphasizes behavior at the ultimate load, and, in particular, aspects of the seismic design of reinforced concrete structures. Based on American practice, but also examines European practice.


ROBERT PARK, PhD, is former Deputy Vice Chancellor and Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand.
