Front Cover
PHI Learning Pvt. Ltd., Sep 23, 2008 - Technology & Engineering - 580 pages
This substantially revised second edition takes into account the provisions of the revised Indian Code of practice for Plain and Reinforced Concrete IS 456 : 2000. It also provides additional data on detailing of steel to make the book more useful to practicing engineers. The chapter on Limit State of Durability for Environment has been completely revised and the new provisions of the code such as those for design for shear in reinforced concrete, rules for shearing main steel in slabs, lateral steel in columns, and stirrups in beams have been explained in detail in the new edition. This comprehensive and systematically organized book is intended for undergraduate students of Civil Engineering, covering the first course on Reinforced Concrete Design and as a reference for the practicing engineers. Besides covering IS 456 : 2000, the book also deals with the British and US Codes. Advanced topics of IS 456 : 2000 have been discussed in the companion volume Advanced Reinforced Concrete Design (also published by Prentice-Hall of India). The two books together cover all the topics in IS 456 : 2000 and many other topics which are so important in modern methods of design of reinforced concrete.
