This book is focused on the theoretical and practical design of reinforced concrete beams, columns and frame structures. It is based on an analytical approach of designing normal reinforced concrete structural elements that are compatible with most international design rules, including for instance the European design rules – Eurocode 2 – for reinforced concrete structures. The book tries to distinguish between what belongs to the structural design philosophy of such structural elements (related to strength of materials arguments) and what belongs to the design rule aspects associated with specific characteristic data (for the material or loading parameters). Reinforced Concrete Beams, Columns and Frames – Mechanics and Design deals with the fundamental aspects of the mechanics and design of reinforced concrete in general, both related to the Serviceability Limit State (SLS) and the Ultimate Limit State (ULS). A second book, entitled Reinforced Concrete Beams, Columns and Frames – Section and Slender Member Analysis, deals with more advanced ULS aspects, along with instability and second-order analysis aspects. Some recent research results including the use of non-local mechanics are also presented. This book is aimed at Masters-level students, engineers, researchers and teachers in the field of reinforced concrete design. Most of the books in this area are very practical or code-oriented, whereas this book is more theoretically based, using rigorous mathematics and mechanics tools. Contents 1. Design at Serviceability Limit State (SLS). 2. Verification at Serviceability Limit State (SLS). 3. Concepts for the Design at Ultimate Limit State (ULS). 4. Bending-Curvature at Ultimate Limit State (ULS). Appendix 1. Cardano’s Method. Appendix 2. Steel Reinforcement Table. About the Authors Charles Casandjian was formerly Associate Professor at INSA (French National Institute of Applied Sciences), Rennes, France and the chairman of the course on reinforced concrete design. He has published work on the mechanics of concrete and is also involved in creating a web experience for teaching reinforced concrete design – BA-CORTEX. Noël Challamel is Professor in Civil Engineering at UBS, University of South Brittany in France and chairman of the EMI-ASCE Stability committee. His contributions mainly concern the dynamics, stability and inelastic behavior of structural components, with special emphasis on Continuum Damage Mechanics (more than 70 publications in International peer-reviewed journals). Christophe Lanos is Professor in Civil Engineering at the University of Rennes 1 in France. He has mainly published work on the mechanics of concrete, as well as other related subjects. He is also involved in creating a web experience for teaching reinforced concrete design – BA-CORTEX. Jostein Hellesland has been Professor of Structural Mechanics at the University of Oslo, Norway since January 1988. His contribution to the field of stability has been recognized and magnified by many high-quality papers in famous international journals such as Engineering Structures, Thin-Walled Structures, Journal of Constructional Steel Research and Journal of Structural Engineering.

This text is intended primarily for third- or fourth-year Civil Engineering students at Canadian universities. It can also be used in graduate courses. Thoroughly Canadianized, this text provides accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive coverage of Canadian engineering design and practice. The First Canadian Edition of Reinforced Concrete has been adapted from the U.S. third edition text to reflect the Canadian concrete design code: A23.3-94 Design of Concrete Structures issued by the Canadian Standards Association. With the exception of the CPCA Concrete Design Handbook, this is the first Canadian textbook that is compatible with the current Canadian design code. (The CPCA Handbook, while used in many Canadian engineering programs, is not considered an adequate learning tool for students). In our book, the theory and practice of reinforced concrete design is explained in a systematic and clear fashion--with an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations, and diagrams. The focus is on preparing students to make the many judgement decisions required in reinforced concrete design. Lead author James MacGregor is a renowned authority on reinforced concrete design. He has been a distinguished teacher and a member of various code committees in Canada.

The assessment of the respoonse of reinforced concrete frames to earthquakes is essential in many parts of the world. Therefore, the design and assessment of the structures which are likely to be subjected to such actions require the application of non-linear analysis using finite element techniques of different degrees of complexity. This state-of-the-art report, examines the behaviour of individual frame members subjected to the cyclic actions arising in seismically loaded frames; i.e. slender flexure-dominated beams, short columns and beam-column joints. The report also considers global inelastic frame behaviour and its modelling, and the peculiarities of the behaviour of masonry-filled frames.
