The author having been in the field of teaching, research and design for more than four decades has evolved the book to suit the needs of students and practising engineers. The book gives an in depth understanding of concepts, detailing and constructability of the, design; and enables the designer to approach an optimal solution. The continuous changes in design and construction practices are kept in mind in developing the theory and illustrative examples. Indian Code of Practice on Plain and Reinforced Concrete (IS: 456) revised in 2000 emphasizes durability considerations. The book is developed based on the latest concrete technology and codes of practices. The author's earlier books on the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures have been popular for many years because of the concepts and methodologies presented in systematic manner. The book highlights the importance of integrating structural systems through reinforcement details. Sometimes, engineers are misled by long output of computers that may or may not be relevant to the actual structure. It is important that the user of structural software has the foundations of structural analysis, design and synthesis before applying the software. The book is an excellent teacher and leader in concepts, design procedures, optimal designs and integrator of detailing of reinforcement.
