Summary/Abstract: Reinforced concrete was introduced in Romania since the end of the 19th century by Professor Anghel Saligny (18541925), the most important personality in the history of the Romanian civil engineering. The one who introduces the study of reinforced concrete, through lessons and projects, at the National School of Bridges and Roads in Bucharest, is Professor Ion Ionescu (18701946). Professor Ion Ionescu published the book Reinforced concrete. Elementary exposure of construction rules and calculation principles in May 1915. This is the first book published in the Romanian technical literature which presents material characteristics, execution, quality control, guidelines for structural calculation and examples of calculations for reinforced concrete elements. This technical book has a major historical importance and is a fundamental reference for the evolution and development of the study of reinforced concrete in Romania.
