Part of the Macmillan Building and Surveying Series book series

Abstract

The effects of column grid size, number of storeys, location of structural components, grade of concrete, number of continuous spans and arrangement of beams in structural systems on the quantities of various constituents of reinforced concrete construction have been studied and presented in the form of charts for the reinforced concrete beam and slab structural system. The charts give the relationships between the quantities of each of the constituents of reinforced concrete construction, namely concrete, reinforcement and formwork, and each of the various parameters of the structure.
