  3. Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition

    Post-Tensioned Concrete: Principles and Practice, Fourth Edition

    The book is a combination of history, academic notes intended for use at the university level, design examples straight from actual jobs that we have designed and practical applications and detailing intended for the practicing engineer. Chapter 1 describes the history of post-tensioned concrete in the United States as only Ken Bondy can tell it. Chapters 2 through 8 are currently the notes that Dirk Bondy uses to teach Design of Prestressed Concrete Structures at UCLA and Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo. Chapters 9 through 13 are practical design examples in which we attempt to address many of the decisions faced by practicing engineers on typical projects including proper computer analysis and modeling techniques. Chapters 13 and 14 contain the true art of detailing and observing the construction of post-tensioned concrete. This knowledge was obtained over many years of working on our own projects and from listening and learning from the men who were the pioneers of post-tensioned concrete.

  4. Wood-Framed Shear Wall Construction: An Illustrated Guide, 2nd Edition cover image

    Wood-Framed Shear Wall Construction: An Illustrated Guide, 2nd Edition (PDF Download)

    Authored by Thor Matteson, S.E.

    This book explains wood-framed shear walls, from basic principles to complex situations.

    Shear walls become more important than ever in homes with high ceilings, extensive windows and open floor plans. If you need more information about shear walls than basic carpentry texts provide but find engineering books dry and confusing, then you need this book. Written by carpenter who is also a structural engineer, this book covers more than the simple rectangular shear walls shown in text books. Real builders have real problems, such as stepped footings, misaligned anchor bolts, and window or duct openings in shear walls. The author addresses these situations, and much more.

    This edition features color photos and illustrations, and a new chapter on earthquake retrofits. Advanced topics include collectors and drag struts, prefab shear walls and frames, and the effect of wood shrinkage on shear walls. The book also covers sloped shear walls, tie-downs and solutions to common problems. This is the most comprehensive book ever written on shear wall construction—it demonstrates how to install shear walls properly to protect the structures you design, build or inspect.

    Features:

    • Extensive color photos and illustrations
    • Written in nontechnical, easy-to-understand terms
    • Tips that show engineers and designers how to improve their plans
    • Includes information on earthquake retrofits for buildings with crawlspaces
    • The physics explained will never go out of date
    • “Quick Start” illustration shows typical shear wall features at a glance
    • More than 150 photos and illustrations

    This is a must have reference for carpenters, inspectors, engineers and contractors.
