Reinforced Concrete Design: To Eurocode 2 (7th Revised Edition)
The best-selling Reinforced Concrete Design provides a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The book contains many worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design that are presented in the text. The seventh edition of the text has been fully revised and updated to reflect the interpretation and use of Eurocode 2 since its introduction. Students and practitioners, both in the UK and elsewhere in the world where Eurocode 2 has been adopted, will find it a concise guide both to the basic theory and to appropriate design procedures. Design charts, tables and formulae are included as design aids and, for ease of reference, an appendix contains a summary of important design information. Features of the seventh edition are: * Completely revised to reflect recent experience of the usage of Eurocode 2 since its introduction in 2004 and its adoption in the UK as a design standard in 2010 * Further examples of the theory put into practice * A new chapter on water retaining structures in accordance with Eurocode 2, Part 3 * New sections on, for example, design processes including conceptual design, deep beams and an expanded treatment of designing for fire resistance.
