OverviewIntended for courses on the Analysis and Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures found in undergraduate Civil and Structural Engineering Departments. This text will also be of use to practising designers. Reinforced Concrete Basics is a book on analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures, starting with the fundamentals followed by the developing of advanced approaches. It contains the material needed for both undergraduate and postgraduate courses in reinforced concrete and for practising engineers. In preparing the text, the authors provide an understanding of structural behaviour before undertaking any quantitative analysis. Examples are introduced at an early stage in the development of each topic. Readers can use the examples as exercises to test their understanding as they proceed with their study of the material.
