Structural Concrete: Theory And Design

The most up to date structural concrete text, with the latest ACI revisions Structural Concrete is the bestselling text on concrete structural design and analysis, providing the latest information and clear explanation in an easy to understand style. Newly updated to reflect the latest ACI 318-14 code, this sixth edition emphasizes a conceptual understanding of the subject, and builds the student's body of knowledge by presenting design methods alongside relevant standards and code. Numerous examples and practice problems help readers grasp the real-world application of the industry's best practices, with explanations and insight on the extensive ACI revision. Each chapter features examples using SI units and US-SI conversion factors, and SI unit design tables are included for reference. Exceptional weather-resistance and stability make concrete a preferred construction material for most parts of the world. For civil and structural engineering applications, rebar and steel beams are generally added during casting to provide additional support. Pre-cast concrete is becoming increasingly common, allowing better quality control, the use of special admixtures, and the production of innovative shapes that would be too complex to construct on site. This book provides complete guidance toward all aspects of reinforced concrete design, including the ACI revisions that address these new practices. Review the properties of reinforced concrete, with models for shrink and creep Understand shear, diagonal tension, axial loading, and torsion Learn planning considerations for reinforced beams and strut and tie Design retaining walls, footings, slender columns, stairs, and more The American Concrete Institute updates structural concrete code approximately every three years, and it's critical that students learn the most recent standards and best practices. Structural Concrete provides the most up to date information, with intuitive explanation and detailed guidance.

The biggest thing I despise about this text is the quality of paper and binding. You can slowly flip the page, as careful as possible, and still have the page pull away from the binding. It is poorly made. According to the professor, previous editions have been an excellent resource. It seems ok as a resource. It explains procedure and necessary theory okay. Many spelling, charts, and error calculations can be found throughout text.

This is not a good book. It is inundated with grammatical errors and calculation errors. The design procedures are not up-to-date. The language used makes me think there ought to be a minimum proficiency in the English language to qualify as an author of a textbook. Apparently that's not the case here.

all book pages for this book are really weak, they are tearing apart as i open the book. please address his issue when i return the book

Explains procedure and necessary theory very clearly. Some spelling and error calculations can be found throughout text.
