    Concrete is an integral part of twenty-first century structural engineering, and an understanding of how to analyze and design concrete structures is a vital part of training as a structural engineer. With Eurocode legislation increasingly replacing British Standards, it’s also important to know how this affects the way you can work with concrete.

    Newly revised to Eurocode 2, this second edition retains the original’s emphasis on qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of concrete structures. Now expanded, with a new chapter dedicated to case studies, worked examples, and exercise examples, it is an even more comprehensive guide to conceptual design, analysis, and detailed design of concrete structures.

    The book provides civil and structural engineering students with complete coverage of the analysis and design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. Great emphasis is placed on developing a qualitative understanding of the overall behaviour of structures.

    Part 1: Structural Loading and Qualitative Design
    Fundamentals of Qualitative Design
    Basic Layout of Concrete
    Loads and Load Effects

    Part 2: Preliminary Analysis and Design
    Fundamentals of Structural Analysis
    Applications of Structural Analysis to Concrete Structures
    Preliminary Sizing of Members
    Case Studies

    Part 3: Detailed Member Design
    Design of Reinforced Concrete Members for Bending
    Design of Prestressed Concrete Members for Bending
    Combined Axial Force and Bending of Reinforced Concrete Members
    Design for Shear and Torsion
