Overview

The 13th edition of the classic text, Design of Concrete Structures, is completely revised using the newly released 2002 American Concrete Institute (ACI) 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 thoroughly updated examples and homework problems throughout. The 13th edition also features a new chapter, Chapter 10, covering strut-and-tie models. 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.
