For courses in reinforced concrete design, concrete construction, structures, structural analysis/design, and concrete in architecture in both engineering technology and applied engineering programs. This text will also be valuable for engineers and architects preparing for state licensing examinations; and for practitioners seeking an up-to-date design resource.
Reinforced Concrete Design Eighth Edition integrates current research and literature to give readers a modern understanding of the strength and behavior of reinforced concrete members and simple reinforced concrete structural systems. It takes a fundamental, non-calculus, practice-oriented approach to the design and analysis of reinforced concrete structural members, using numerous examples and a step-by-step solution format.
This eighth edition is fully updated to conform to the American Concrete Institute’s latest Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-11), the current U.S. design standard. A new chapter discusses practical considerations and rules of thumb for designing reinforced concrete structures, including initial sizing and layout; calculation of approximate moment and shears in concrete girders; repair methods for existing structures, and a new student design project. The text also offers conceptual insights into topics such as prestressed concrete and detailing.
