Reinforced Concrete Design, 7e provides a non-calculus, practical approach to the design, analysis, and detailing of reinforced concrete structural members using numerous examples and a step-by-step solution format. Written with practicality and accessibility in mind, the text does not require calculus; it focuses on the math and fundamentals that are most appropriate for construction, architectural, and engineering technology programs. Revised to conform to the latest ACI code (ACI 318-08), this edition retains its unique chapters on prestressed concrete, formwork design and detailing, expanded coverage of columns, over 150 homework problems, and numerous sample problems complete with step-by-step solutions.
This new edition of a textbook on engineering design has been updated to reflect 1999's Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete of the American Concrete Institute. Design and analysis issues are examined from a practical perspective, downplaying the use of calculus. Chapters cover reinforced concrete beams; shear in beams; development, splices, and simple-span bar cutoffs; continuous construction design considerations; serviceability; walls; columns; footings; prestressed concrete fundamentals; concrete formwork; and detailing reinforced concrete structures.
