Designed to meet the needs of students aspiring to enroll into the undergraduate civil and structural engineering programs, Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures has been proven to be useful for postgraduate students as well as an indispensable reference for practicing engineers and researchers. The contents of the book cover areas such as concrete properties, structural elemental designs, including compression and tension members, beams and slabs and flexure designing, shear torsion, uni-axial and biaxial bending and interaction between such forces.
With every chapter featuring solved examples, review questions, practice questions, along with abundant illustrations accompanying concise texts, an enormous list of appendices on strut-and-tie-method, soil properties, along with practical tips and tricks bundle up the richness of the contents in the book.
Sections on chemical admixtures, water, mineral admixtures, cement hydration, concrete types, sifcon and simcon, ferrocement, steel reinforcing, corrosion of rebars, cube and cylinder tests and a lot more are included in Chapter 1. Chapter 2 covers sections such as floor and roof systems, basic structural elements and other such related studies.
The contents of the book are all in accordance with the current Indian code of practice (IS 456: 2000). Where some of the provisions are outdated, they are replaced with the American code provisions.
Written by N. Subramanian, the book was published by OUP India in 2014 and is available in paperback.
