Overview

With its accessible approach and streamlined coverage of theory, engineers will quickly learn how to apply the concepts in the eighth edition. The contents have been updated to conform to the 2008 building code of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-08). New spreadsheets are included that arm the reader with tools to analyze and design reinforced concrete elements and quickly compare alternative solutions. A new chapter on seismic design explores the issues related to the design of reinforced concrete structures to resist earthquakes. The new materials section also provides engineers with details and examples on how to design shear walls for combined axial load and bending moment.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
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)
