The structural analysis and design based on “Limit State Design” was developed from the traditional Elastic Design. The method improves the design to accurately reflect actual structural stress behavior and deformation characteristic with the requirements on various limit states of structures in both safety and service conditions. In the past, the Engineering Institute of Thailand under H.M. the King’s Patronage (EIT) had ever published “The Limit State Design Standard” drafted by past president, Dr.Siriluck Chandrangsu but it was based on old international standards. The drafting committee by faculty members of Chulalongkorn university therefore has revised and improved the standard to conform with current international standards. In addition, the committee has found that it is a good opportunity to provide also the English version of the Limit State Design for Structural Concrete so that Thai engineers as well as foreign engineers who work in Thailand can adopt as a standard reference for concrete structural design. Therefore the committee has translated the original Thai version of the standard into English and transfer copyright ownership to EIT for the publishing.
Any comments or suggestions, can be sent to EIT for further improvement
