In structural detailing, the project is initiated by the structural engineer. The architectural drawings are prepared by the architect to the required scale and specification given to him by the client.
The structural engineer designs the structural frame work of the building and specification required such as slab, beam, column and foundation.
For proper clearification and understanding, the structure is broken down into its component parts and detailed keeping in mind the design consideration.
Structural detailing is the transformation of the works of the structural Engineer into working drawing for the builders to use without any cumbersome.
The methods, symbols and notations used are standardized for uniformity despite the multi-diversity natures of the construction industry. The standard method of measurement and notations ofdetailing a building should be understood before carying the exercise.
The purpose of their written account is to present a straight forward introduction to the basic standard method in detailing reinforced concrete structure and their component parts. Here a structural detailing of three bedroom duplex has been chosen as the project.
Both the architectural work and the civil engineering work have been completed. The subject matter has been arranged so that chapter 1-4 covers the description of basic material and engineering design specification while the last chapter covers the actual detailing of the components, all details are shown in plan elevation and section
