The best-selling Reinforced Concrete Design provides a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The book contains many worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design that are presented in the text. The seventh edition of the text has been fully revised and updated to reflect the interpretation and use of Eurocode 2 since its introduction. Students and practitioners, both in the UK and elsewhere in the world where Eurocode 2 has been adopted, will find it a concise guide both to the basic theory and to appropriate design procedures. Design charts, tables and formulae are included as design aids and, for ease of reference, an appendix contains a summary of important design information. Features of the seventh edition are: • Completely revised to reflect recent experience of the usage of Eurocode 2 since its introduction in 2004 and its adoption in the UK as a design standard in 2010 • Further examples of the theory put into practice • A new chapter on water retaining structures in accordance with Eurocode 2, Part 3 • New sections on, for example, design processes including conceptual design, deep beams and an expanded treatment of designing for fire resistance

This text is developed from the established and well-known textbook Reinforced Concrete Design. It adopts the same format of presentation to cover the design and detailing of reinforced and prestressed concrete members and structures to the new Eurocode for the design of concrete structures (Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures, Part 1). The book aims to give a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures and presents numerous worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design. Although the detailed methods considered are generally according to EC2 much of the theory presented is also of a fundamental nature. Appropriate design charts, tables and formulae are presented as design aids and, for ease of reference, a summary of important design equations together with design tables and charts are presented in the Appendix.
This textbook describes the basic mechanical features of concrete and explains the main resistant mechanisms activated in the reinforced concrete structures and foundations when subjected to centred and eccentric axial force, bending moment, shear, torsion and prestressing. It presents a complete set of limit-state design criteria of the modern theory of RC incorporating principles and rules of the final version of the official Eurocode 2. This textbook examines methodological more than notional aspects of the presented topics, focusing on the verifications of assumptions, the rigorousness of the analysis and the consequent degree of reliability of results. Each chapter develops an organic topic, which is eventually illustrated by examples in each final paragraph containing the relative numerical applications. These practical end-of-chapter appendices and intuitive flow-charts ensure a smooth learning experience. The book stands as an ideal learning resource for students of structural design and analysis courses in civil engineering, building construction and architecture, as well as a valuable reference for concrete structural design professionals in practice.

It adopts the same format of presentation to cover the design and detailing of reinforced and prestressed concrete members and structures to the new Eurocode for the design of concrete structures (Eurocode 2: Design of Concrete Structures, Part 1).
This handbook will assist designers to apply Eurocode 2 by explaining the background to, and the intention of, the provisions indicating the most convenient design approaches, comparing the provisions with those in BS 8110 presenting design aids, charts and examples.
This practical design guide illustrates through worked examples how Eurocode 2 may be used in practice. Complete and detailed designs of six archetypal building and public utility structures are provided. The book caters to students and engineers with little or no practical experience of design, as well as to more experienced engineers who may be unfamiliar with Eurocode 2. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the Structural Eurocodes, with particular reference to actions on structures. Chapter 2 describes the principles, requirements and methods used for the design of members. This is followed by worked examples for the following structures: A multi-storey office building with three forms of floor construction A basement to the office building with three types of foundations A free-standing cantilever earth-retaining wall A large underground service reservoir An open-top rectangular tank on an elastic soil An open-top cylindrical tank on an elastic soil In addition to the design of all the elements, the analysis of each structure is fully explained. This applies particularly to the design of the basement, and the tanks bearing on elastic soils, for which specially derived tables are included in appendices to the book. The calculations are complemented by reinforcement drawings in accordance with the recommendations in the third edition (2006) of the Standard method of detailing structural concrete, with commentaries on the bar arrangements. This book can be used as a stand-alone publication, or as a more detailed companion to Reynolds’s Reinforced Concrete Designer’s Handbook, now in its 11th edition. The comprehensive treatment of the designs, and the variety of structures considered, make this a unique and invaluable work.

Eurocode 2 is the key document for future structural design in concrete throughout Europe. To use the Code effectively, structural engineers need a range of aids in the form of flow charts, design charts and simplified procedures. This book provides all of these, and is written with the authority of collaborative work by members of the Concrete Societies of the UK, the Netherlands and Germany. The preparation of the book has been funded under the SPRINT European Community programme for innovation and technology transfer.
This fourth edition of a bestselling textbook has been extensively rewritten and expanded in line with the current Eurocodes. It presents the principles of the design of concrete elements and of complete structures, with practical illustrations of the theory. It explains the background to the Eurocode rules and goes beyond the core topics to cover the design of foundations, retaining walls, and water retaining structures. The text includes more than sixty worked out design examples and more than six hundred diagrams, plans, and charts. It suitable for civil engineering courses and is a useful reference for practicing engineers.
