This single location in Australian Capital Concrrte Despite its substantial improvements in presentation, the omens are not promising. Surely an overall safety factor nearer the traditional 1. The recommendations given in this clause are potentially extremely dangerous. These online bookshops told us they have this item: Reinforced concrete design to CP In fact, the technical content of BS is less than perfect and it may be advisable to pay more attention to this – particularly if, as intended, it becomes the only Code available.

CP 110-1:1972

On the other, should the permissible stress due to permanent earth pressure be the same as that for 1- in- 50 years 3s wind gust? Tags What are tags? In practice, earth pressures tend to be among the least well- defined of all the fp110 considered by the designer – is it logical to give them the cp1100 safety factor?


To include a comma in your tag, surround the tag with double quotes. Even if the detailing rules given in cl. On the one hand, is there any evidence that a safety factor of around 1.

This table is at the heart of BS, defining safety levels throughout. Lists What are lists? Conversely, where stress is due to combined dead and wind loads, the required safety factor has been increased from 1. Subjects Reinforced concrete construction — Standards.

Only time will tell whether BS will gain the general acceptance that eluded its predecessor. The Structural Engineer Vol. Be the first to add this to a list.

It allows this to be applied where there are cantilevers of length up to one- third of the adjacent slab span, with live load up to 1. It is widely accepted that CP did not live up to expectations, earning a reputation of being cumbersome to use and requiring over- concrste calculations for simple problems.

Does this mean we can reduce links close to supports although we know this is the failure zone in tests? The overall safety factor for earth retaining structures has been reduced from 1.

Set up My libraries Condrete do I set up “My libraries”? As in CP, BS tells us cl. These increases in cover and the richness of mixes for indoor work will substantially increase costs of buildings – sample designs suggest that plain continuous slabs designed to BS will actually be heavier and more costly than designs to the current CP, despite the lack of durability problems in the latter.


The new concrete code – is it all it’s cracked up to be?

Therefore, the first condition cannot be satisfied. Is this necessary, and is it progress? The design of prestressed beams and slabs with unbonded tendons cl. However, the most serious changes in BS concern indoor concrete, where remarkably few problems have occurred in practice.

Furthermore, the safety factor required against overturning by wind is 1. This single location in Queensland: What is the point in saying design may be based on statistical methods when it is clearly not possible?

It is thus virtually useless. The National Library may be able to supply you with a photocopy or electronic copy of all or part of this item, for a fee, depending on copyright restrictions.

Perhaps before we rush to write computer programs, books or Eurocodes – or to withdraw CP – we should try to resolve at least some of the problems in BS The original copy of this paper is available from www.
