Reinforced Concrete Design: Design Theory and Examples, Third Edition – An exclusive book for civil engineering students
Prab Bhatt, Thomas J. MacGinley and Ban Seng Choo have jointly written an exclusive construction book for global construction professionals. The book is titles as Reinforced Concrete: Design Theory And Examples, 3rd Edition.
The book provides design theory for concrete components and structures as well as demonstrates the hands-on experience usages of the theory.
The third edition abides by the most updated standards of BS 8110 1997, the code for structural use of concrete; and BS 8007:1987, the code for making design of structures to maintain aqueous liquids.
The book is specifically published for the students undergoing civil engineering degree courses to facilitate them to learn the theories of element design and the methods for creating the design of concrete buildings. The book will be also very fruitful for new graduates who just commence their career in structural design.
Various new illustrations and sections are included in this book, specifically the chapter on slabs is significantly elaborated with widespread coverage on Yield line analysis along with Hillerborg’s strip method and design for predetermined stress fields.
Besides, there are four new chapters to include the contents of university courses in design in structural concrete. The new chapters focus on the design of prestressed concrete structures, design of water tanks, a short chapter comparing the vital clauses of Eurocode 2 as well as a chapter on the basic theoretical characteristics of design of statically indeterminate structures.
The book comprises of over sixty evidently worked out design examples and more than 600 diagrams, plans and charts as well as provides brief explanation on the British Standard and Eurocode and highlights the variations among the codes. There are new chapters on prestressed concrete and water retaining structures as well as the most commonly faced design issues in structural concrete.
