The third edition of this popular textbook has been extensively rewritten and expanded to conform to the latest versions of BS8110 and EC2. It sets out design theory for concrete elements and structures, and illustrates practical applications of the theory.

Reinforced Concrete includes more than 60 clearly worked out design examples and over 600 diagrams, plans and charts. Background to the British Standard and Eurocode are given to explain the "why" as well as the "how," and differences between the codes are highlighted. New chapters on prestressed concrete and water retaining structures are included in this edition, and the most commonly encountered design problems in structural concrete are covered. Additional worked examples are available on an associated website at This book is written for students on civil engineering degree courses, to explain the principles of element design and the procedures for design of concrete buildings, and is also a useful reference for practicing engineers.
