The definitive Australian text covering the design, manufacture and installation of precast reinforced and prestressed concrete, the Precast Concrete Handbook is an essential resource for precast concrete projects.
The second edition is now available in hard cover and has been revised to comply with AS3600 (2009) and other relevant revised Australian standards. It contains new technical data on a range of precast concrete elements including sandwich panels and provides information on using precast concrete in sustainable designs.
The book explains design impacts caused by recent changes to the Building Code of Australia. It also contains data on the thermal performance and data on the acoustic insulation properties of precast concrete elements.
The Precast Concrete Handbook is available in both disk and hard cover formats. A student disk is also available. Member discounts apply to National Precast and Concrete Institute members.
