A detailed presentation of the design of common reinforced concrete structures to limit state theory is given. After introductory chapters on reinforced concrete construction and on design theories, the book deals with section analysis for moment, shear and bond and for cracking and deflection of members. Other chapters cover concrete design for building elements such as simple beams, continuous beams, slabs, columns, walls and foundations, and the final chapter deals with complete buildings: their stability, idealization analysis and design and brings together the preceding work on elements in the context of the overall structure. Worked examples are included. The use of design aids is emphasized. Construction of design charts is given and simple computer programming is introduced where it will assist in the design. The application of elastic theory to beams and columns is also briefly outlined. The major part of reinforced concrete design required for degree courses in civil engineering is covered. /TRRL/
