This book sets out basic theory for the behaviour of reinforced concrete structural elements and structures. It emphasizes behaviour at the ultimate load and, in particular, aspects of seismic design of reinforced concrete structures. It provides a background for the building code for reinforced concrete of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-71) by explaining design approaches based on up-to-date research data. Though the text is based on American practice, wherever relevant, it examines European practice. It explains the reason for every step in the design or detailing of structural components. Aspects of earthquake engineering are examined as they affect such reinforced concrete structures as multi-storey buildings. Such considerations include the effects of high intensity reversed cyclic loading on structural elements and the requirements of ductility. Using the basic design approach the authors cover material properties, strength and the deformation of elements, service load behaviour, strength and ductility of frames, and shear walls and the detailing of reinforcement for efficient performance. /TRRL/
