By Michael D Kotsovos

This ebook offers a mode which simplifies and unifies the layout of bolstered concrete (RC) buildings and is appropriate to any structural aspect lower than either general and seismic loading stipulations. The proposed approach has a valid theoretical foundation and is expressed in a unified shape acceptable to all structural participants, in addition to their connections. it's utilized in perform by using basic failure standards derived from first ideas with no the necessity for calibration by using experimental info. the tactic is able to predicting not just load-carrying means but in addition the destinations and modes of failure, in addition to safeguarding the structural functionality code requisites.
In this e-book, the suggestions underlying the strategy are first provided for the case of easily supported RC beams. the applying of the strategy is steadily prolonged on the way to conceal all universal structural components. for every structural aspect thought of, facts of the validity of the proposed technique is gifted including layout examples and comparisons with present code requirements. the strategy has been discovered to supply layout ideas which fulfill the seismic functionality specifications of present codes in all instances investigated up to now, together with structural participants equivalent to beams, columns, and partitions, beam-to-beam or column-to-column connections, and beam-to-column joints.
