Design codes and Handbooks

A code is a set of technical specifications intended to control the design and construction. The code can be legally adopted to see that sound structures are designed and constructed code specifies acceptable methods of design and construction to produce safe and sound structures.

National building codes have been formulated in different countries to lay down guidelines for the design and construction of structures. The international building code has been published by the international code council located in the USA. National building code (NBC – 2005) published in India describes the specification and design procedure for buildings.

For designing reinforced concrete following codes of different countries are available 

India – IS456 – 2000 – Plain and reinforced concrete code practice.
