Differences between Working stress method and Limit state method

Design of RCC Structures

The design of the components of the RCC structure can be done in the following two ways:

  1. Working Stress Method
  2. Limit State Method
Methods of RCC Design
Methods of RCC Design

Here are some of the design procedures of the components of the RCC structures:

Design of RCC beams

Design of RCC columns

Design of RCC staircase

Design of Foundations

Design of Simply Supported Slabs

In this article, we are going to discuss the major difference between the two important methods of RCC design. This will help us understand the mechanics of the Structural Design and which method is to be adopted for better efficiency.
