New Concepts in the Design of Structural Concrete

The present design procedures for reinforced and prestressed concrete are reviewed briefly. This forms the background for a discussion of the purpose of design and the phenomena meriting consideration in the design process; this discussion encompasses the developments that have been taking place in our understanding of structural behaviour and in the concepts of structural safety. The shortcomings of the present design procedures are then considered and a new philosophy of design, based upon the work of the European Committee for Concrete, is outlined. R.E. Rowe, W.B. Cranston and B.C. Best
