Structural Concrete: Theory and Design
Structural Concrete: Theory and Design 6th Edition is a bestselling text on concrete structural design and analysis. The book 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 revisions to ACI 318-14. Each chapter features examples using SI units and US-SI conversion factors, and SI unit design tables are included for reference. The 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
