Manual for Detailing Reinforced Concrete Structures to EC2

Manual for Detailing Reinforced Concrete Structures to EC2 pdf

Manual for Detailing Reinforced Concrete Structures to EC2 – Detailing is an essential part of the design process. This thorough reference guide for the design of reinforced concrete structures is largely based on Eurocode 2 (EC2), plus other European design standards such as Eurocode 8 (EC8), where appropriate.

With its large format, double-page spread layout, this book systematically details 213 structural elements. These have been carefully selected by José Calavera to cover relevant elements used in practice. Each element is presented with a whole-page annotated model along with commentary and recommendations for the element concerned, as well as a summary of the appropriate Eurocode legislation with reference to further standards and literature. The book also comes with a CD-ROM containing AutoCAD files of all of the models, which can be directly developed and adapted for specific designs.

Its accessible and practical format makes the book an ideal handbook for professional engineers working with reinforced concrete, as well as for students who are training to become designers of concrete structures.

Review – Manual for Detailing Reinforced Concrete Structures to EC2

Este manual, heredero natural del elaborado en su día por el mismo autor de acuerdo con la Instrucción Española EHE, resulta de gran interés para los técnicos y profesionales que trabajan en el diseño de estructuras de hormigón armado en general, y para los españoles en particular, dada la relativamente escasa discusión alcanzada hasta ahora entre nuestros especialistas por el Eurocodigo (EC-2) y las perspectivas de que esta situación vaya modificándose en el futuro.
