Foreword: The aim of this book is to present a fairly full and systematic description of the construction details used in concrete structures.

While I paid particular attention to construction details in my previous books, all dealing primarily with structural design and engineering, I was naturally unable to address the issue in depth in any of them.

I have decided to do so today, acknowledging the importance of detailing and convinced that it is one of the areas of expertise that professionals must quickly learn to master.  Construction details have a substantial impact not only on the quality of both the design and the building processes, but on concrete structure maintenance and durability as well.

Forty-five to fifty per cent of the problems arising around concrete structures are widely known to be attributable to the design stage. That half of those problems are due to errors in, or the lack of, construction details is a fact much less generally recognised.

Detailing is always the outcome of a synthesis of four areas of knowledge:
• a command of the theory underlying structural concrete engineering
• on-site professional practice
• experimental information obtained from laboratory trials
• the experience obtained in forensic engineering studies.

The extraordinary complexity resulting from such diversity is deftly reflected in the expression ‘the art of detailing’, which alludes to the mix of technical skill and creativity entailed in good detailing.

Someone inevitably decides how details are to be built: otherwise construction could not proceed. But the task is actually incumbent upon the designer. The further ‘downstream’ the detailing is done, the greater is the risk of malfunction.

This book begins with an introductory chapter that summarises specifications on concrete cover, reinforcing bar placement and spacing, hook bending radii, anchorages and bar  welding. It also briefly discusses questions that have been scantily addressed in most countries’ codes, such as how bars should be tied or spacers and chairs placed. 

The second chapter is a description of the 213 construction details that comprise the book. Divided into 15 groups, they embrace what I believe to be a sufficient range of issues arising in reinforced concrete construction.

In this chapter each page on the left shows a drawing of a construction detail. The Notes set out on the page opposite on the right contains further information, as specified below.

(a) A series of Recommendations that supplement and help to interpret the drawing, in some cases with concise reference to specific engineering questions. 
(b) Reference to Statutory Legislation in the European Union.
(c) Reference to Recommended Alternative Codes to enable the reader to fill in the gaps where no statutory legislation is in place in the European Union, or in a number of specific cases, to resort to variations of interest. 
(d) Finally, a list of Specific References that deal explicitly and directly with the detail in question.

Version 2005 AutoCAD software is furnished with the book to enable designers to adapt each detail to the reinforcing bars used in their designs and print the results on a printer or plotter. In closing, I owe a word of thanks to the people who collaborated in the preparation of this book. My gratitude goes to Antonio Machado for coordinating the draughting, Maribel Gonzalez and Mercedes Julve for the typing; and Antonio Machado, Fernando Marcos and Julio Cesar Lopez for draughting the details from my sketches, which were not always as carefully drawn as would have been desired.

Many thanks as well to Margaret Clark and Mc LEHM Language Services for the translation of my original Spanish manuscript into English.

I am also indebted to Jorge Ley for his assistance in many respects. Lastly, I wish to express my very special gratitude to Taylor & Francis for the support received in connection with the publication of this book, and particularly to Tony Moore and Siobhan Poole for their assistance.

About The author:
Jose Calavera graduated in civil engineering in 1960 and earned his doctorate in the field in 1967, both from the School of Civil Engineering, Polytechnic University of Madrid. From 1960 to 1967 he headed the Engineering Department at Tetracero, a Spanish producer of ribbed bars for reinforced concrete.

In 1967 he founded the Technical Institute of Materials and Construction (INTEMAC – lnstituto Tecnico de Materiales y Construcciones), an independent quality control organisation that covers design, materials and workmanship in both building and civil engineering. He is presently the lnstitute’s Honorary President.

In 1982 he was appointed Professor of the Building and Precasting Department at the School of Civil Engineering, Polytechnic University of Madrid, where he is now Emeritus Professor. He is a Fellow of the American Concrete Institute (ACI), the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) and the International Association for Bridge and Structural Engineering (IABSE). He holds the International Federation for Structural Concrete’s (FIB) Medal of Honour, and has been awarded the Italian Association of the Prefabrication Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Engineering and the Eduardo Torroja Medal.

He has written 15 books in Spanish, one in Italian and two in English on structural concreterelated subjects. His most prominent designs include the Fuente De Aerial Cableway, the roof over the Real Madrid Sports Centre and the space frame roofs over the National Livestock Market at Torrelavega. He is also a renowned specialist in forensic engineering.
