|About the Book||Content|
This volume II elucidates the basic principles involved in the analysis and design of Advanced Reinforced Concrete Structures. The entire subject matter is divided in Twenty Two chapters. These chapters are arranged in four groups. The first group of chapter one to chapter eight contains the advanced topics in the design of beams, slabs and foundation. The name of the chapters are circular slabs; Ribbed and Waffle slabs; Flat Slab; Domes; Deep Beams and Corbels; beams Curved in Plan; Grid or coffered
The second group of chapter nine to chapter sixteen discusses analysis and design of multistoreyed buildings with an example of an Unbraced building following the latest IS codes on earth quake and ductile detailing. Shear walls are also introduced. It contains chapter viz., multi-storeyed buildings: Fundamentals; Analysis and design for Gravity Loads: an overview ; Lateral Loads, Wind loads, Earthquake loads; Analysis of Lateral loads; Ductility considerations; Unbraced building design examples; Walls in buildings.
The salient features of the book are:
* Simple, lucid and easy language
This book now contains:
* 303 Self explanatory and neat diagrams
It is hoped that the book should be extremely useful to the Civil Engineering and Architecture students preparing for Degree Examinations of all 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. and other similar competitive and professional Examinations. It should also prove of great interest and practical use to the practicing engineers.
