Reinforced Concrete Design has been written to impart in-depth knowledge to students about the subject. The appropriate Indian standard guidelines, suitable illustrations, figures and solved numerical problems have been included. The design techniques used by the engineers have been discussed with suitable examples to provide basic knowledge to the readers. A sufficient number of questions are given at the end of each chapter to enable the students prepare for the examinations. An additional chapter explaining the concepts and applications of earthquake-resistant design of structures has been included in the text. The fundamentals of computer-aided design and drawing using suitable illustrations have been explained in the last chapter to enable the engineers to understand the practical applications of the subject. The book will serve the purpose of providing thorough knowledge to the students and practicing engineers in the subject. Salient features ·Thorough understanding of design of reinforced concrete structures. ·Knowledge of earthquake-resistant design of structures. ·Computer-aided design fundamentals. ·Analysis and design using STAAD ·Drawing using AUTO CAD. · Illustrations containing reinforcement details.
