E-Book - Fastening Systems in Concrete Construction

Please enter alternative text here (optional)

This book is a useful design guidebook for the practicing engineers who have to design different types of fasteners in their projects as well as for academician and students who are interested in this topic. In absence of national standards, it becomes difficult for the engineers to design the fastening systems which are also an integral aspect of the structure. 

Fortunately, there are several international standards as well as specialist literature on the subject. This book talks about innovative fastening technologies like cast-in anchor channels, post-installed anchors, post-installed rebar and direct fastening systems.

This book introduces basic concepts related to fastening technology, explains the design method  recommended in Eurocodes as well as gives an overview of assessment criteria  as per various guidelines developed by “European Organization for Technical Assessment (EOTA)”. Several design examples are also covered in detail. 

Lastly, this book also discusses some case studies to showcase practical applications of  these innovative technologies.
