    This book is suited for a first course in prestressed concrete design offered to senior undergraduate students in civil engineering and postgraduate students in structural engineering. The book focuses on the behaviour of the prestressed concrete structural elements, with emphasis on clarity and precision in its discussions. Carefully chosen worked examples are included to delineate the design aspects while pointed chapter-end questions enable effortless recapitulation of the subject. This book, while being useful to both the students and teachers, will also serve as an invaluable reference for practising engineers.
