The transition from national standards for concrete structural design to Eurocode EN 1992 is the biggest change to concrete design for decades.

This new edition of Concrete Design explains the key differences between BS8110 and EN1992, and teaches the fundamentals of the design of concrete structures to comply with the Eurocodes.

With many illustrations and worked examples, this accessible textbook teaches the essentials of concrete design to EN1992 to students and professionals alike.
