Title: Observations On European Practice In Concrete Design And Construction
Author(s): B. Moreell
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 391-406
Abstract:States that European practice tends towards greater refinement in theoretical analysis and in attention to minor details than American practice because material. costs. are higher and labor costs More reliance is placed on theory and less on test results. Construction procedures are not as accurately controlled as in the best American practice Paper includes French standards for materials including - reinforcing concrete, and for steel, design cement, including aggregate calculation 4 of strength, shrinkage and temperature changes, design loads, allowable stresses, compression steel tension steel, diagonal tension reinforcement, and lateral reinforcement of compression members.
