TL;DR: In this article, the authors present guidance on prestressed concrete design in normal weight concrete where prestress is by fully bonded tendons, advice is given on the required numbers of tendons and the prestressing force and the limit states.
Abstract: This document contains only that material from Eurocode 2 (EC2) necessary for the design of everyday reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Other material not in EC2, including bending moment coefficients for beams and slabs and design charts are included in an appendix, so that designers have all the information they would expect to find in a British code. Recommendations are given for concrete cover and durability, and designs for the ultimate limit state in bending and axial load, shear resistance, and torsion is examined. The control of cracking and deflection is discussed. The guidance on prestressed concrete design is limited to structures in normal weight concrete where prestress is by fully bonded tendons. Advice is given on the required numbers of tendons, the prestressing force and the limit states. Anchorages and anchorage zones are considered.

TL;DR: In this paper, an algorithm for the calculation of structural reliability under combined loading is formulated, in which loads or any other actions upon structures are modelled as independent random sequences and the relevant limit state criterion is pointwise approximated by a tangent hyperplane.
Abstract: An algorithm for the calculation of structural reliability under combined loading is formulated. Loads or any other actions upon structures are modelled as independent random sequences. The relevant limit state criterion is pointwise approximated by a tangent hyperplane. The combination of time-variant actions then reduces to the calculation of the maximum of a sum of random variables which is facilitated through proper, discrete approximation of extreme value and other non-normal distribution functions by normal distributions. The iteration algorithm searches for an approximation point on the limit state criterion where the probability content of the failure domain limited by the tangent hyperplane reaches its maximum. Any type of continuous limit state criterion and any distribution type for the loads can be dealt with. The method is illustrated for a section of a wall without tensile strength loaded by a bending moment and a normal force.

Abstract: Inevitably, reading is one of the requirements to be undergone. To improve the performance and quality, someone needs to have something new every day. It will suggest you to have more inspirations, then. However, the needs of inspirations will make you searching for some sources. Even from the other people experience, internet, and many books. Books and internet are the recommended media to help you improving your quality and performance.

TL;DR: This book discusses the concepts of limit states and limit state functions, and presents methodologies for calculating reliability indices and calibrating partial safety factors, and supplies information on the probability distributions and parameters used to characterize both applied loads and member resistances.
Abstract: This book enables both students and practicing engineers to appreciate how to value and handle reliability as an important dimension of structural design. The book discusses the concepts of limit states and limit state functions, and presents methodologies for calculating reliability indices and calibrating partial safety factors. It also supplies information on the probability distributions and parameters used to characterize both applied loads and member resistances. This book contains more discussions of United States (US) and international codes and the issues underlying their development. There is a significant discussion on Monte Carlo simulation. The books' emphasis is on the practical applications of structural reliability theory rather than the theory itself. Consequently, probability theory is treated as a tool, and enough is given to show the novice reader how to calculate reliability. Some background in structural engineering and structural mechanics is assumed.
