|1. “Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures” by P Dayaratnam
Book Review: This book is a very good course book for civil engineering students and a good reference book for design engineers. The book demonstrates the three basic methods of designing which are working stress design, limit state design and ultimate strength design. The book also contains numerous examples on variety of elements like beams, ties, columns, slabs, shells and bridges. The book also contains examples with detailed explanations on minimum weight design of beams. The book also discusses economic analysis and influence of design variable and cost methods.
|2. “Design of Reinforced Concrete” by Jack C McCormac
Book Review: This book very nicely covers all the theoretical aspects related to design of reinforced concrete and also illustrates the application of concepts. Most of the content in the book has been updated and it also includes new spreadsheets along with various tools that are used to analyze and design reinforced concrete elements and deal with the comparison of alternative solutions. The book also contains a chapter on seismic design and demonstrates the issues related to the design of concrete structures to prevent earthquakes.
|3. “Advanced Reinforced Concrete Design” by P C Varghese
Book Review: This book provides a clear understanding of the fundamentals of the theory of concrete design. This book is very useful for postgraduate students in the field of civil engineering and is also useful to civil engineers who deal with the practices followed by the industry. The book also analyses the procedures that are specified in BIS codes like those on winds, earthquakes and ductile detailing. The book is very systematically organized and covers all the aspects related to advanced reinforced concrete design.
