Economic concrete frame elements to eurocode


Economic concrete frame elements to eurocode

In conceiving a design for a multi-storey structure, there are, potentially, many options to be 
considered. The purpose of this publication is to help designers identify least-cost concrete options quickly. It does this by
Presenting feasible, economic concrete options for consideration
Providing preliminary sizing of concrete frame elements in multi-storey structures
Providing first estimates of reinforcement quantities
Outlining the effects of using different types of concrete elements
Helping ensure that the right concrete options are considered for scheme design
This handbook contains charts and data that present economic sizes for many types of concrete elements over a range of common loadings and spans. The main emphasis is on floor plates as these commonly represent 85% of superstructure costs. A short commentary on each type of element is given. This publication does not cover lateral stability; it presumes that stability will be provided by other means (e.g. by shear walls) and will be checked independently, nor does it cover foundations
