Mehdi Setareh, associate professor of architecture in the School of Architecture + Design in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and adjunct professor of civil engineering in the College of Engineering at Virginia Tech, has written Concrete Structures with co-author Robert Darvas, professor emeritus at the University of Michigan. Published by Prentice-Hall and due out in June, the book provides technical information on the design and construction of concrete structures. It complies with the latest American Concrete Institute code provisions.
Featured in the publication are nearly 500 images, self-experiments, and an accompanying CD with images of various concrete structures. The self-experiments include simple-to-do sets of exercises that students can conduct by themselves to learn about reinforced concrete. The accompanying CD includes images of various standard tests on concrete, examples of different reinforced concrete structural systems, problems associated with concrete construction, and examples of self-experiments conducted by students at Virginia Tech.
