Reinforced Concrete Design To Eurocode2- for free


Reinforced concrete is a strong and durable building material that can be molded in to a variety of shapes and sizes, from simple rectangular columns to elongated curved domes and shells. Its utility and versatility are achieved by combining the best features of concrete and steel. Consider some of the vastly different properties of these two materials that are described in this book.

From this list, it can be seen that the materials are more or less complementary. Thus, when the two are combined, the steel provides some of the tensile strength and possibly some of the shear strength, while the concrete, which is resistant to compression, protects the steel and gives it durability and fire resistance. This chapter provides a brief introduction to the basic properties of concrete and steel reinforcement. For a more comprehensive study, the reader is referred to the technical papers listed in the “References” section at the end of the book.

About the Book

The purpose of this book is to provide an accessible introduction to the principles and methods of designing concrete structures. The book is intended primarily for students and young engineers who need a concise guide to understanding the basic theory and design procedures. Detailed design methods are generally based on European Standards (Euro Codes).

The subject matter of the book is arranged so that Chapters1through5 deal primarily with theory and analysis, while the subsequent chapters deal with the design and details of various types of members and structures.

There is also a chapter on earth retaining structures and a final chapter on pre stressed concrete to incorporate topics normally covered in undergraduate courses. Important formulas derived in the text are highlighted by an asterisk adjacent to the formula number, and the Appendix contains a summary of the key formulas; where it is necessary to include content not directly prescribed in EuroCodes, it is based on currently accepted UK good practice.

This book was prepared primarily to maintain the structure and features of Mosley and Bungey’s (Macmillan Press, 1990) well-established British Standards-based reinforced concrete design book.

The book is based on British Standards and is currently in its fourth edition. Comparison of the two books allows the reader to compare the essential differences between EuroCode2 and the existing British Standard and to contrast the different results when structures are designed according to either standard.

Excerpts from European standards are included by permission of the British Standards Institution, Lin ford Wood, Milton Keynes, Bucks. Concise. EuroCode for the Design of Concrete Structures is reproduced by permission of the British Cement Association, Century House, Telford Avenue, Crowthorne, Berks.
