Precast reinforced and prestressed concrete frames provide a high strength, stable, durable and robust solution for any multi-storey structure, and are widely regarded as a high quality, economic and architecturally versatile technology for the construction of multi-storey buildings. The resulting buildings satisfy a wide range of commercial and industrial needs. Precast concrete buildings behave in a different way to those where the concrete is cast in-situ, with the components subject to different forces and movements. These factors are explored in detail in the second edition of Multi-Storey Precast Concrete Framed Structures, providing a detailed understanding of the procedures involved in precast structural design. This new edition has been fully updated to reflect recent developments, and includes many structural calculations based on EUROCODE standards. These are shown in parallel with similar calculations based on British Standards to ensure the designer is fully aware of the differences required in designing to EUROCODE standards.

Features design examples to Eurocode standards including BS EN 1990: Basis of Structural Design, BS EN 1991: Actions on Structures, and BS EN 1992: Design of Concrete Structures
Numerous worked examples with Eurocode and older BS based calculations shown in parallel
Strongly practical in approach

Kim S. Elliott :- Kim S. Elliott BTech, PhD, CEng, MICE is a self-employed consultant to the precast industry in the UK and Malaysia. He was Senior Lecturer in the School of Civil Engineering at Nottingham University, UK, from 1987 to 2010, and was formerly at Trent Concrete Structures Ltd, one of the UK’s leading precast concrete manufacturers. Since 1987, he has been active in research into the behaviour of precast concrete structures and has published more than 120 papers and 6 text books. He is a member of the FIB UK Group and FIB Commission on Prefabrication.

Colin Jolly :- Colin K. Jolly MSc, PhD, CEng, MICE, FIStructE is a self-employed consultant to Cranfield University and the construction industry. He was Senior Lecturer in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Southampton University, UK, from 1978 to 1999, and in the Engineering Systems Department at the Royal Military College of Science (now the Defence Academy) from 2000-2006, having formerly worked for Consulting Engineers in the UK and Oman. Since 1975, he has been active in research into the behaviour of a wide variety of composite materials in structures, and has published more than 280 papers and industrial reports. He is a member of the UK Expert Group providing recommendations for the evolution of the European loading code EN 1990.
