Reinforced Concrete Design by Abi O. Aghayere, George F. Limbrunner

The purpose of this book is to provide a straightforward introduction to the principles and methods of design for concrete structures. It is directed primarily at students and young designers who require an understanding of the basic theory and a concise guide to design procedures. Although the detailed design methods are generally according to British standards, much of the theory and practice is of a fundamental nature and should, therefore, be useful to engineers in other countries. limit state concepts, as recently introduced in the new codes of practice, are used and the calculations are in SI units throughout.

The subject matter has been arranged so that chapters 1 to 6 deal mostly with theory and analysis while the following chapters cover the design and detailing of various types of member and structure. In order to include topics that are usually in an undergraduate course, there is a chapter on earth- and water-retaining structures and also a final chapter on prestressed concrete. Important equations that have been derived within the text are highlighted by an asterisk adjacent to the equation number.

A major problem with books on design practice is that the design standards and specifications are liable to be revised after the book is published. For this reason the reader should ensure that he is using the latest edition of the relevant standard. This is particularly true when the design may involve the use of any of the tables within the text that have been taken from CP 110.

Extracts from the British Standards are reproduced by permission of the British Standards Institution, 2 Park Street, London WIA 2BS, from whom complete co pies can be obtained. The Cement and Concrete Association have kindly given permission to use tables 6.1 and 6.2 which are based on tables in the Handbook on the Unified Code for Structural Concrete. Finally the authors wish to thank Mrs B. Cotgreave who prepared the diagrams and Mrs F. Zimme.
