Setting out design theory for concrete elements and structures and illustrating the practical applications of the theory, the third edition of this popular textbook has been extensively rewritten and expanded to conform to the latest versions of BS8110 and EC2. It includes more than sixty clearly worked out design examples and over 600 diagrams, plans and charts as well as giving the background to the British Standard and Eurocode to explain the 'why' as well as the 'how' and highlighting the differences between the codes. New chapters on prestressed concrete and water retaining structures are included and the most commonly encountered design problems in structural concrete are covered. Invaluable for students on civil engineering degree courses; explaining the principles of element design and the procedures for the design of concrete buildings, its breadth and depth of coverage also make it a useful reference tool for practising engineers.
