The purpose of this book is to provide a straightforward introduction to the principles and methods of design for concrete structures. It is directed primarily at students and young engineers who require an understanding of the basic theory and a concise guide to design procedures. Although the detailed design methods are generally according to European Standards (EuroCodes), much of the theory and practice is of a fundamental nature and should, therefore, also be useful to engineers in countries outside Europe.

The search for harmonisation of Technical Standards across the European Community (EC) has led to the development of a series of these Structural EuroCodes which are the technical documents intended for adoption throughout all the member states. The use of these common standards is intended to lower trade barriers and enable companies to compete on a more equitable basis throughout the EC. EuroCode 2 (EC2) deals with the design of concrete structures, which has most recently been covered in the UK by British Standard BS8110 which superseded British Standard CPllO in 1985. Limit state principles established by these British Standards are also adopted by EuroCode 2.

The code drafting committee has also produced a range of supporting documents giving commentary and background explanation for some of the requirements of the code. Further supporting documentation includes, for each separate country, the National Application Document (NAD) which includes information specific to the individual member states. Additionally the British Cement Association has produced The Concise EuroCode for the Design of Concrete Buildings which contains material that has been distilled from EC2 but is presented in a way that makes it more user-friendly than the main EuroCode and contains only that information which is essential for the design of more everyday concrete structures.
