Design of reinforced concrete structures is an introductory design course in civil engineering. In this course, basic elements governed by bending, shear, axial forces or combination of them are identified and are considered as building blocks of the whole structure. Different methods of design will be briefly described before introducing the limit states of collapse and serviceability. The design will be done as per IS 456:2000
