Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design
Based on the latest (1995) edition of the authoritative American Concrete Institute Building Code, this text explains the theory and practice of reinforced concrete design in a systematic and clear fashion - with an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations, and photographs. The focus is on preparing students to make the many judgement decisions required in reinforced concrete design, and reflects the author's extensive experience and expertise as both a teacher of reinforced concrete design and as a member of various code committees. This edition updates all content to reflect the 1995 American Concrete Institute Building code; provides new/revised/expanded coverage of core testing and durability shrinkage and creep, bases the maximum steel ratio and the value of the factor on Appendix B of ACI318-95, composite concrete beams, strut-and-tie models, and dapped ends and T-beam flanges. The discussion of STMs is expanded, and new examples in SI units are added.
