Name of Notes : – Design of Concrete Structures Lecture Note


Reinforced concrete, as a composite material, has occupied a special place in the modern construction of different types of structures due to its several advantages. Italian architect Ponti once remarked that concrete liberated us from the rectangle. Due to its flexibility in form and superiority in performance, it has replaced, to a large extent, the earlier materials like stone, timber and steel.

Further, architect’s scope and imaginations have widened to a great extent due to its mouldability and monolith city. Thus, it has helped the architects and engineers to build several attractive shell forms and other curved structures.

However, its role in several straight line structural forms like multistoried frames, bridges, foundations etc. is enormous.

The design of these modern reinforced concrete structures may appear to be highly complex. However, most of these structures are the assembly of several basic structural elements such as beams, columns, slabs, walls and foundations (Anim. 1.1.1). Accordingly, the designer has to learn the design of these basic reinforced concrete elements. The joints and connections are then carefully developed.
