This text primarily analyses different methods of design of concrete structures as per IS 456: 2000 (Plain and Reinforced Concrete—Indian Standard Code of Practice, 4th revision, Bureau of Indian Standards). It gives greater emphasis on the limit state method so as to illustrate the acceptable limits for the safety and serviceability requirements of structures.
