This book covers the fundamental topics in reinforced concrete design. It outlines the basic design theory and illustrates some practical applications through many useful worked examples. This second edition of the book has fourteen chapters. The original thirteen chapters cover the fundamental topics in reinforced concrete design, an essential course taught in B. Eng. (Civil) programme curriculum in most universities worldwide. A special chapter on the design of ground floor slabs has been added to assist students and practicing engineers in designing such slab, which is not commonly found in many reinforced concrete books.
This book also introduces some multiple-choice questions and additional questions for the readers to enhance their understanding on the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design. Additional examples are also included e.g. determination of anchorage length, design of circular columns, trapezoidal footing and counterfort retaining wall.
