Reinforced Concrete Design Theory and Examples PDF

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.

The importance of computers in structural design is recognized by analysing all statically indeterminate structures by Matrix stiffness method. However, as design offices nowadays extensively use Spread Sheets type calculations rather than small scale computer programs, the chapter on computer programs has been deleted.
