Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures, Paperback / softback Book

Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures Paperback / softback


This book provides an extensive coverage of the design of reinforced concrete structures in accordance with the current Indian code of practice (IS 456: 2000).

As some of the Indian code provisions are outdated, the American code provisions are provided, wherever necessary.

In addition, an attempt is made to integrate the provisions of IS 456 with earthquake code (IS 13920), as more than 60% of India falls under moderate or severe earthquake zones.

The text is basedon the limit state approach to design and covers areas such as the properties of concrete, design of various structural elements such as compression and tension members, beams & slabs, and design for flexure, shear torsion, uni-axial and biaxial bending and interaction of these forces.

Each chapterfeatures solved examples, review questions, and practice problems as well as ample illustrations that supplement the text.

An exhaustive list of references as well as appendices on strut-and-tie-method, properties of soils, and practical tips add value to the rich contents of book.
