CODE OF PRACTICE FOR THE STRUCTURAL USE OF CONCRETE. PART 1. DESIGN, MATERIALS AND WORKMANSHIP. PART 2. DESIGN CHARTS FOR SINGLY REINFORCED BEAMS, DOUBLY REINFORCED BEAMS AND RECTANGULAR COLUMNS. PART 3. DESIGN CHARTS FOR CIRCULAR COLUMNS AND PRESTRESSED BEAMS.

Part 1 of this code of practice is presented under the following headings:- 1. General. 2. Design: objectives and general recommendations. 3. Design and detailing: reinforced concrete. 4. Design and detailing: prestressed concrete. 5. Design and detailing: precast and plain concrete construction. 6. Specification and workmanship: concrete. 7. Specification and workmanship: reinforcement. 8. Specification and workmanship: prestressing tendons. 9. Inspection and testing of structures and components. 10. Fire resistance. 11. Autoclaved aerated concrete. 12. High alumina cement concrete. The design charts contained in Parts 2 and 3 of the code are intended to be used as an aid when analysing the cross-section of a member at the ultimate limit state. The charts are based on the assumptions laid down in Part 1, use being made of the parabolic-rectangular stress block throughout. Full details of the derivation of the charts are appended.
