National building codes have been formulated in different countries to lay down guidelines for the design and construction of structures. The codes have been evolved from the collective wisdom of expert structural engineers, gained over the years. These codes are periodically revised to bring them in line with current research, and often current trends. The main function of the design codes is to ensure adequate structural safety, by specifying certain essential minimum reinforcement for design. They render the task of the designer relatively easy and simple, results are often formulated in formulas or charts. The codes ensure a certain degree of consistency among different designers. Finally, they have some legal validity in that they protect the structural designer from any liability due to structural failures that are caused by inadequate supervision and or faulty material and construction. The aim of this project is to compare the design codes of IS 456-2007, ACI 318-11code and Eurocode II. The broad design criteria like stress strain block parameters, L D ratio, load combinations, formula will be compared along with the area of steel for the major structural members like beams, slab, columns, footing to get an over view how the codes fair in comparison with each other. The emphasis will be to put the results in tabular and graphical representation so as to get a better clarity and comparative analysis.
