Based on the latest ACI Code, "Concrete Structures" takes a step-by-step approach to exploring the design and analysis of reinforced concrete structures and elements. It covers concrete technology, analysis and design of reinforced concrete beams, slabs, columns, footings, and walls. It also introduces the different types of reinforced concrete floor systems and the fundamentals of pre-stressed concrete structures. Unique self-experiments, realistic problems and an accompanying CD-ROM help readers further understand concrete's structural significance and potential as a building material.
Includes the most recent methods of design and analysis of reinforced concrete structures and is based on the American Concrete Institute Code (ACI 318-05). Easy to follow using a step-by-step, non-calculus approach. Includes a series of experiments readers can conduct on their own to comprehend concrete's structural significance and understand more about concrete as a building material.
Practicing architects and engineers, in particular individuals preparing for the licensing exams. People interested in the building design and construction can also benefit from the book as it follows a step by step approach in the design and analysis of concrete structures.
