Standard Method of Detailing Structural Concrete. A Manual for Best Practice (Third Edition) by by B.H.G Cresswell Riol (Editor), The Institution of Structural Engineers (Publisher)
Requirements: PDF Reader, 11.0 MB
Overview: This publication is a standard reference for work in structural design offices – to be used in conjunction with the normal design codes and manuals. It provides guidance on good practice and is a working document on structural concrete that can be used to interpret the designer’s instructions in the form of drawings and schedules for communication to the site.
This edition considers, as far as possible, the effects of Eurocode 2 on detailing principles and materials and attempts to provide guidance consistent with the Eurocodes. Changes in practices and procurement of detailing services have been considered, such as the development of increased off-site fabrication and detailing being undertaken later in the construction sequence through initiatives such as contractor detailing.
The information and advice is based on Eurocodes and UK practice, which is associated with UK materials and labour costs. The principles and details are relevant for use in most parts of the world with only minor adjustment. As with previous editions of the publication, the steering group was formed of members from both the Institution and The Concrete Society.
