This code provides minimum requirements for
design and construction of structural concrete elements
of any structure erected under requirements of
the legally adopted general building code of which this
code forms a part. In areas without a legally adopted
building code, this code defines minimum acceptable
standards of design and construction practice.
This code shall govern in all matters pertain-ing to design, construction, anhd material properties wherever this code is in conflict with requirements contained in other standards referenced in this code.
The code portion of this document covers the proper design anhd construction of buildings of structural conerete. The code has been written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code and carlier edition have been widely used in this manner.
The code portion of this document covers the design and construction of structural concrete used in buildings and
where applicable in nonbuilding structures.
Among the subjects covered are: drawings and specifications; inspection; materials; durability requirements; concrete
quality, mixing, and placing; formwork; embedded pipes; construction joints; reinforcement details; analysis and
design; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; shear and torsion; development and splices of reinforcement; ...

Before we dive in and start building applications for the iPhone, I’d like to quickly
establish the playing field. In this chapter, I’ll define key terms, compare the pros and
cons of the two most common development approaches, and present a crash course in
the three core web technologies that are used in this book.

This Part of BS 5628 has been prepared under the direction of Technical
Committee B/525, Building and Civil Engineering Structures. It supersedes
BS 5628-1:1978, which is withdrawn.
This edition of BS 5628-1 introduces technical changes, but it does not reflect a
full review or revision of the standard which will be undertaken in due course.
This Part uses limit state philosophy, in accordance with practice in other codes.
The 1948, 1964 and 1970 editions of CP 111 were in permissible stress terms, and
a section on reinforced masonry walls was included.
This book takes enterprise developers inside the architecture, protocols, and programming practices for building distributed-object Web Services. The authors also step readers through building a high-end Web Service of their own, using real-world examples and proven strategies. All the book's code examples appear on the companion CD-ROM.
This Part of BS 6399 gives minimum imposed roof
loads for use in designing buildings and building
components which are to be constructed and used in
the UK and the Channel Islands. It applies to:
a) new buildings and new structures;
b) alterations and additions to existing buildings
and existing structures.
Caution is necessary in applying the snow load
calculations for sites at altitudes above 500 m and
specialist advice should be obtained in such
situations (see appendix C).
