Scliaaneiaa = Concrete Design W. H. Mosley, v He yO bd Hulse Reinforced Concrete Design, now in its fifth edition, provides a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The book contains many worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design that are involved. Fully revised and updated to conform to the 1997 version of BS Sato, students and practitioners alike will find ita concise guide both ta the basic theory and to design procedures, Appropriate design charts, tables and formulae are included as design alds and, for ease of reference, an appendix contains a summary of important design information. = Completely revised in line with new British Standards @ Includes a new chapter on composite construction and additional material on the design of pile caps, corbels, waffle stabs and shear walls = Important equations highlighted in the text * Numerous examples of the theory in practice All the authors are chartered engineers, each with more than twenty years of teaching experience at undergraduate and postgraduate level, W. H. Mosley, now retired, was formerly Senior Teaching Fellow at the School of Civil and Structural Engineering, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. J. H. Bungey is Head of Department and Professor of Civil Engineering at the University of Liverpool. R. Hulse is Associate Dean of the School of the Built Environment at Coventry University. bila: ww yemacpress, com Contents Preface to fifth edition Notation 1 Properties of reinforced concrete 1 1.2 13 14 15 1.6 Composite action Stress-strain relations Shrinkage and thermal movement Creep Durability Specification of materials 2 Limit state design 21 2.2 23 24 Limit states Characteristic material strengths and characteristic loads Partial factors of safety Global factor of safety 3 Analysis of the structure 31 3.2 33 34 35 3.6 Loads Load combinations Analysis of beams ‘Analysis of frames Shear wall structures resisting horizontal loads Redistribution of moments 4 Analysis of the section 41 42 43 44 45 46 47 48 49 ‘Stress-strain relations The distribution of strains and stresses across a section Bending and the equivalent rectangular stress block Singly reinforced rectangular section in bending Rectangular section with compression reinforcement at the ultimate limit state Flanged section in bending at the ultimate limit state Moment redistribution and the design equations Bending plus axial load at the ultimate limit state “The rectangular-parabolic stress block 4.10.
