Design and Construction of Concrete Floors outlines the key principles needed for the production of a good floor which can be relied on to not only support and restrain other parts of the building, but also to meet the needs of the user.
The book covers:
* Uses of concrete floors
* Structural design
* Concrete used specifically for floors
* Cracks and joints
* Floor surface properties
This book is ideal for structural engineers and others in the building and design industry that want to use a balanced approach and look beyond structural strength in the design of a good floor.
The book draws on both European and American experience, citing both British and US standards – all of which have been amended and updated since the last edition.
