Concrete and Steel are one of the most common construction materials even in today, Steel Structures Vs Concrete Structures is an attempt to compare advantages and disadvantages of both materials from constriction and maintenance point of view. Concrete is the second most used material for construction after water in the world. Concrete structure can take compressive stresses very effectively but it cannot take tensile stresses. So the reinforcement is given to concrete where the structure is under the tension load.
Project Case Studies
This book presents various aspects of FRP composite materials, their characteristics, manufacturing techniques, real-life projects, di erent forms of FRP products and, most importantly, detailed procedures for designing new structures using FRP as internal reinforcements, external strengthening materials, and prestressing materials. Alongside case study problems, for example, on FRP prestressed concrete bridges, this book comes equipped with ample exercise problems and design examples.

Elevated temperatures can significantly influence the performance and behaviour of reinforced concrete. Typically, these effects result in reduced material and physical properties of the concrete and reinforcing steel, depending on the actual temperature and duration of exposure. This consideration is of particular concern for reinforced concrete containment structures at CANDU nuclear generating stations.
