Manual for the design of concrete building structures to Eurocode 2
This Manual is a complete revision to the Manual for the design of reinforced concreete
building structures to EC2 March 2000 previously published jointly by the Institution of Structural Engineers and the Institution of Civil Engineers, but follows the same basic format. It provides guidance on the design of reinforced and pre-stressed concrete building structures that do not rely on bending in the columns for their resistance to horizontal forces and are also non-sway. The limit state design of foundations is included but the final design of pre-stressed concrete structures has been excluded. Structures designed in accordance with this Manual will normally comply with Eurocode 2. However it is not intended to be a substitute for the greater range of Eurocode 2. The NDPs from the UK NA have been taken into account in the design formulae that are presented.
