Nonlinear analysis methods such as static pushover are globally considered a reliable tool for seismic and structural assessment. But the accuracy of seismic capacity estimates—which can prevent catastrophic loss of life and astronomical damage repair costs—depends on the use of the correct basic input parameters. Seismic Design Aids for Nonlinear Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Structures simplifies the estimation of those vital parameters. Many design engineers make the relatively common mistake of using default properties of materials as input to nonlinear analyses without realizing that any minor variation in the nonlinear characteristics of constitutive materials, such as concrete and steel, could result in a solution error that leads to incorrect assessment or interpretation.To achieve a more accurate pushover analysis and improve general performance-based design, this book: • Review relevant literature to help engineers conduct structural seismic assessment • Includes design curves, alleviating the need for complex mathematics • Offers supplementary online tools to aid in computing any parameter • Provides complete computer coding used to obtain building collapse multipliers Reassessing key imputs, this book analyzes boundaries using a detailed mathematical model based on international codes, It proposes design curves and tables derived from the authors' studies, detailing modeling numerical procedures step by step. The authors include analytical bounds of the structural safety factor for some typical frames, making this work a sound and valuable tool for assessment or design purpose. Contents Chapter 1: Axial Force–Bending Moment Yield Interaction Chapter 2: Moment-Curvature Relationship for RC Sections Chapter 3: Moment-Rotation Relationship for RC Beams Chapter 4: Bounds for Collapse Loads of Building Frames Subjected to Seismic Loads: A Comparison with Nonlinear Static Pushover Chapter 5: Flow Rule Verification for P-M Interaction Domains Chapter 6: Computer Coding for Collapse Multipliers References Index

This important textbook provides an introduction to the concepts of the newly developed extended finite element method (XFEM) for fracture analysis of structures, as well as for other related engineering applications. One of the main advantages of the method is that it avoids any need for remeshing or geometric crack modelling in numerical simulation, while generating discontinuous fields along a crack and around its tip. The second major advantage of the method is that by a small increase in number of degrees of freedom, far more accurate solutions can be obtained. The method has recently been extended to nonlinear materials and other disciplines such as modelling contact and interface, simulation of inclusions and holes, moving and changing phase problems, and even to multiscale analyses. The book is self contained, with summaries of both classical and modern computational techniques. The main chapters include a comprehensive range of numerical examples describing various features of XFEM. Contents Dedication. Preface . Nomenclature . Chapter 1 Introduction.

In this book, accomplished international experts present advanced modeling techniques as well as in-depth case studies meant to lead designers towards the optimal use of simulation tools for the design of net-zero energy buildings (Net ZEBs) . The book discusses different design processes and tools used in designing Net ZEBs, starting from the fundamental concepts, design strategies, and technologies. These processes and tools are then evaluated by referring to four diverse Net ZEBs where the authors were intimately involved from the design concept to operation. The high resolution measured performance data from these case studies are compared with the predictions made using the respective design tools. Written by academics and building designers based in North America and Europe, this book provides a broad perspective on Net ZEBs. It is a guideline for advanced building designers that draws from both the theoretical background and the vast practical experience of the authors.

"Sustainability is a major global concern and Indias responsibility and leadership in this initiative is vital being the second argest producer of concrete in the world. Authors have very systematically approached the subject with elucidation on State of the Art parameters. All the major influencing factors are considered in the form of well illustrated chapters. I am very sure and happy that this book will be useful to any concrete practitioner not only in the country but also from other parts of the world." Dr. S K Manjrekar, Chairman and Managing Director, Sunanda Speciality Coatings Pvt. Ltd. “Sustainable concrete has been discussed in various forms and articles, but this book covers them under one cover. We always have built concrete structures, which were supposed to be durable and in todays terms sustainable. In the last two decades, this topic has been dealt extensively from technical to professional organizations in various formats. It is well-timed with up-to-date information to help all those related to our civil engineering profession from students to practicing engineers and others.” Dr. Gajanan M. Sabnis, P.E. Distinguished MASCE About the Book: Global environment is getting increasingly heated up by Green House Gases (GHG) mainly carbondioxide due to economic development and changing life styles. It is essential to control this pattern of climate change through sustainable development for the survival of future generations. Concrete is widely used material on earth only next to water and responsible for about 7% of global contribution of GHG. Authors in this book have highlighted various measures to reduce GHG emissions in production and use of concrete and to make it more durable, economical and sustainable. This is the 1st Indian book on Concrete Sustainability and written with a view of Indian conditions and construction practices. The book lucidly covers all phases in the life of concrete from Cradle to Grave. It is believed that the book will make positive contribution in addressing the burning issue of climate change and sustainability and will be well received by civil engineering professionals and academicians alike in India and abroad.

About the Book : The steel wire drawing industry boasts of one lakh uses of wire in our daily life. There are very few books on steel wire, Such as, Wire by Anton Pomp which is now out of print; Galvanizing by Henrik Bablik which also shares the same fate, and Steel wire hand books, published by Wire Association International Inc., USA. All the above mentioned books have a thread in common and i.e., they are mainly theoretical and eminently useful in understanding the mechanism and intricacies of wire drawing and other aspects related to it. This book is not written in the conventional form having chapters giving details of a particular subject in each chapter. The same system of compiling notes is followed — viz., arranging topics in an alphabetical order where one can pick up details on any topic — as in the case of a dictionary. The change in format however, does not diminish the scope of covering all aspects of wire industry. About the Author : The author is a graduate in Metallurgical Engineering from Benares Hindu University. He was employed in Indian Aluminium Co. Ltd., an Indo-Canadian enterprise for 17 years. He worked in various capacities in Usha Martin Black (Wire Ropes) Ltd. for 18 years. He was the Chief Executive in Steel India (P) Ltd. and Mohatta & Heckel Ltd. Later he was the General Manager in Panyam Cements and Mineral Industries Ltd. (Wire Division) and Technical Advisor to Bhoruka Engineering Industries Ltd. After retirement he worked as Consultant to Ram Sarup Industrial Corporation, Bhilai Wires Ltd., Austenetic Steels (P) Ltd., Aaradhya Steel Wires Pvt. Ltd., Miki Wire Works and Signet Steel India and S.S. Lootah & Co. in Dubai. In connection with official duties, he has travelled extensively in Europe, United States of America, Middle East and Singapore.
