Reinforced Concrete Design Theory and Examples

Reinforced Concrete Design Theory and Examples 

The third edition of the book has been written to conform to BS 8110 1997 the code for
structural use of concrete and BS 8007:1987 the code for Design of structures for retaining
aqueous liquids. The aim remains as stated in the first edition: to set out design theory
and illustrate the practical applications of code rules by the inclusion of as many useful
examples as possible. The book is written primarily for students on civil engineering
degree courses to assist them to understand the principles of element design and the procedures
for the design of concrete buildings. The book will also be of assistance to new
graduates starting on their career in structural design.

The book has been thoroughly revised to conform to the updated code rules. Many
new examples and sections have been added. In particular the chapter on Slabs has been
considerably expanded with extensive coverage of Yield line analysis, Hillerborg’s strip
method and design for predetermined stress fields. In addition, four new chapters have
been added to reflect the contents of university courses in design in structural concrete.
The new chapters are concerned with design of prestressed concrete structures, design of
water tanks, a short chapter comparing the important clauses of Eurocode 2 and finally a
chapter on the fundamental theoretical aspects of design of statically indeterminate structures,
an area that is very poorly treated in most text books.
