A structure is an assembly of members each of which is

subjected to bending or to direct force (either tensile or

compressive) or to a combination of bending and direct

force. These primary influences may be accompanied by

shearing forces and sometimes by torsion. Effects due to

changes in temperature and to shrinkage and creep of

the concrete, and the possibility of damage resulting

from overloading, local damage, abrasion, vibration, frost,

chemical attack and similar causes may also have to be


Design includes the calculation of, or other

means of assessing and providing resistance against, the

moments, forces and other effects on the members. An

efficiently designed structure is one in which the members

are arranged in such a way that the weight, loads and forces

are transmitted to the foundations by the cheapest means

consistent with the intended use of the structure and

the nature of the site. Efficient design means more than

providing suitable sizes for the concrete members and the

provision of the calculated amount of reinforcement in an

economical manner,
