About The Book
Description:

This comprehensive and well-organized text provides a masterly exposition of the fundamentals of analysis and design of reinforced concrete shells and folded plates, commonly known as thin concrete roof structures. Divided into 20 chapters, the book presents practical designs of different types of domes, cylindrical shells, paraboloids, conoids, and groined shells, as well as various types of folded plates. The text also incorporates tables from ASCE Manual No. 31.

The book explains the subject in such a way that it can be easily understood even by students who have a basic knowledge of mathematics. Students will find the chapters on Folded Plates particularly useful as these structures are easy to build. After studying the book, their analysis and design can be done with greater ease.

Key Features :

Explains step-by-step the procedure for the design of various types of shells and folded plates.

The book is lecture-based, each chapter dealing with one topic. (This enables the teachers to plan their lectures in a proper fashion.)

Provides a large number of worked-out examples and review questions at ends of chapters, which are illustrative and act as brain teasers.

Gives large number of diagrams to illustrate the concepts discussed.

This reader friendly book is intended as a text for the postgraduate students of Civil Engineering/Architecture. As with all the books of Prof. P.C. Varghese, who brings in all his years of experience and expertise into his work, this book too would be of enormous help to practising engineers and architects besides the students.
