I used this book as the textbook for my graduate course: "Earthquake-Resistant Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures" in addition to ACI 318 Building Code, ASCE 7, and my own handouts. I read most chapters of the book while teaching the course. Compared to other books such as Paulay and Priestly's "Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete and Masonry Building" or Englekirk's "Seismic Design of Reinforced and Precast Concrete Buildings", this book is much easier to understand and to self-study. It provides solid background of the seismic provisions in ACI 318 and well explains the details of the seismic design requirements in ACI 318, which makes it an excellent book for anyone would like to know the current seismic design practice of reinforced concrete buildings in the U.S. This book provides very systematic summary of past research results on the behavior of reinforced concrete members under cyclic loadings such as beams, beam-column joints, columns, slender and squat walls, coupling beams, slab-column connections, and diaphragms. The book also provides very thorough review of the concrete confinement, shear, and bond behavior under seismic loading. In addition to materials related to cyclic behavior or seismic design of reinforced concrete members, this book also provides many fundamental and advanced topics such as concrete and steel’s properties, moment & axial force interaction, moment-curvature response of typical beams, shear, strut-and-tie models, development and anchorage etc. so it can actually be used as a textbook or reference for a regular reinforced concrete course. A few highlights and suggestions:1.
