## Description

This book presents the basic principles involved in Analysis and Design of Reinforced

Concrete Structures. This 12th edition of Vol. I has been thoroughly revised and extensively

enlarged in two parts. Almost all chapters are revised with adding a plenty of new matter,

examples and figures. Mix design as per latest IS:10262 with excel programs is added.

A number of excel programs have been added to clarify the subject matter and design

the elements of structure. As per prevailing market conditions the default combination of

materials is revised to M20 grade concrete and Fe 500 grade steel, however, the other

combinations of materials have not been completely ignored.

The outline of the book “Reinforced Concrete Vol. I – Part I” is as mentioned below:

Chapter 1 to 3 discuss mainly Concrete Technology. Chapter 1 introduces the subject, while

chapter 2 deals with properties of ingredients of concrete. Chapter 3 deals with properties

of wet and set concrete. It explains design mix concrete and presents excel programs to

design a concrete mix for standard concretes based on IS:10262-2019.

Chapter 4 to 6 discuss fundamentals of flexure design, also discuss working stress method

as well as limit state method for flexure design. It designs singly and doubly reinforced

rectangular and flanged beams for flexure.

Chapter 7 and 8 presents design for Shear and checking for Development Length, Deflection

and Cracking.

Chapter 9 and 10 deal with the design of Simply Supported and Cantilever Beams and Slabs.

Chapter 11 Continuous beams and slabs capable of free rotation at supports are discussed,

including redistribution of moments.

Chapter 12 and 13 Simple cases of torsion and stairs are discussed.

Chapter 14 and 15 Introduce the Load Calculations and Simple designs. Considering the

fundamentals developed in earlier chapters, the load calculations on simple structures like

Slabs and Beams, capable of free rotation at supports are considered. A few cases are

designed in chapter 15.

Chapter 16 Designs of Framed Beams are introduced with examples considering it appropriate

to discuss with the elements that are not free to rotate at their supports.

Now this book “Reinforced Concrete Vol. I – Part I”, in its 16 Chapters and

Appendix contains:

350 Neatly drawn sketches

063 Useful tables

167 Design problems

243 Questions at the end of the chapters

019 Excel programs

316 Short questions with answers.

The book in the present form will prove to be extremely useful to the students preparing for

the Degree examinations in Civil Engineering and Architecture of all the Indian Universities,

Diploma examinations conducted by various Boards of Technical Education, Certificate

Courses as well as for the A.M.I.E., U.P.S.C., G.A.T.E., I.E.S., and other similar competitive

and professional examinations. It should also be an immense use to practicing Civil Engineers.
