The 14th edition of the classic text, Design of Concrete Structures, is completely revised using the newly released 2008 ACI (American Concrete Institute) Code. This new edition has the same dual objectives as the previous editions; first to establish a firm understanding of the behavior of structural concrete, then to develop proficiency in the methods used in current design practice.

Design of Concrete Structures covers the behavior and design aspects of concrete and provides updated examples and homework problems. New material on slender columns, seismic design, anchorage using headed deformed bars, and reinforcing slabs for shear using headed studs has been added. The notation has been thouroughly updated to match changes in the ACI Code.

The text also presents the basic mechanics of structural concrete and methods for the design of individual members for bending, shear, torsion, and axial force, and provides detail in the various types of structural systems applications, including an extensive presentation of slabs, footings, foundations, and retaining walls.


Presents basic mechanics of structural concrete and methods for design of individual members for bending, shear, torsion, and axial forces, and provides detail on applications in various types of structural systems, with particular focus on slab systems. US customary units are used throughout, with an appendix of SI equivalents. Includes chapter problems. This 12th edition contains expanded information on slender columns, seismic design, and a unified method of design for flexural and compression members, and reflects recent legislation and codes. This edition deletes chapters on bridges, composite construction, and slabs on grade. Can be used for an undergraduate one- or two-semester course in design of concrete structures, or for first-year graduates. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
