Reviews

Precast Concrete Structures provides complete guidance for the analysis and design of precast concrete structures. This new edition brings all the material up to date with state of art of research, codes of practice and technology. Nevertheless, the author maintains his practical approach with many examples. For these reasons, Dr Elliott's book is a worldwide reference for academics, professionals and the precast industry. -- Dr Marcelo Ferreira, Federal University of Sao Carlos, Brazil The author explains his design approach in a very comprehensive way that allows young and experienced engineers to understand the followed design philosophy and the relevant clauses in the most common codes. The many worked examples fill the gap between theoretical approach and daily practice. -- Stef Maas, Belgian Precast Association Professor Elliott draws upon his many years of research, experience, and expertise to introduce conceptual design ideas for the prefabrication of concrete structures and presents a number of worked examples of designs to Eurocode EC2, before going into the detail of the design, manufacture, and construction of precast concrete multi-storey buildings... Precast Concrete Structures is a critically important and core addition to professional and academic library Architectural Studies collections. -- Midwest Book Review, March 2017
