Overview

This extensively revised and updated fourth edition provides engineers with the principles and tools needed to turn their familiarity with earlier ACI Codes into more profitable, time-saving routine designs.
Created to be used with the ACI Code and Commentary, this outstanding guide follows the new Code format with information covered in more specific sections and subsections in order to enhance clarity. In addition, it shortens the time needed for computer-aided design and analysis, converts code formulas from the review form to direct design, and presents simple formulas, tabulations, and charts for conservative longhand direct design. Two convenient indices - a subject index and a 1995 Code section index - are provided, enabling engineers to quickly locate all Code references to a particular topic, as well as concise interpretation of a given Code section.
The Guide also saves engineers time and effort on the job with its detailed coverage of:

• torsional stiffness,
• braced and unbraced slender columns with and without sidesway,
• wide-module joist systems,
• reinforcement details for economy in design, detailing, fabricating, field erection, and inspection,
• latest ASTM material specifications,
• anchorage, development, and splice requirements,
• high-strength concrete,
• comparisons between wall and column economy,
• structural plain concrete.
More than ever, the sure-handed Structural Design Guide to the ACI Building Code is an indispensable practical reference for structural, civil, and architectural engineers and students who want to safely meet modern building requirements while taking full advantage of every economy permitted by the 1995 ACI Code.
