Put your knowledge of concrete on a solid footing

Join generations of aspiring engineers by turning to this bestselling text for your introduction to the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design. Updated to conform to the 2008 building code of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-08), the Eighth Edition of Design of Reinforced Concrete gives you a thorough grounding in the field and an up-to-date understanding of the most current developments in codes, tools, and design elements.

With an accessible approach and streamlined coverage of theory,  this comprehensive overview of reinforced concrete theory and application explains ACI Code requirements and explores the design of reinforced concrete beams, slabs, columns, footings, retaining walls, bearing walls, prestressed concrete sections, and framework.

Augmenting the celebrated content of its predecessors, this Eighth Edition…

  • Familiarizes you with to the 2008 building code of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-08) and with revisions made by the American Concrete Institute in Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (318-05) and Commentary (318R-05)

  • Arms you with new spreadsheets and other tools to analyze and design reinforced concrete elements more quickly and to compare alternative solutions

  • Guides you in new techniques such as seismic and shear wall design

  • Leads you through numerous examples so you fully absorb and apply the principles discussed


This textbook for an introductory three credit course covers analysis and design of beams, columns, footings, walls, and two-way slabs. The fifth edition is updated to agree with the 1999 American Concrete Institute Code, and adds information relating to high strength concretes, fiber reinforced concretes, and shear walls. The CD-ROM contains the CONCAD program for solving problems. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
