The committee charged with the task of preparing this handbook on reinforced concrete design recognized that throughout the United States there are many codes and specifications covering a multitude of uses of reinforced concrete. In these codes, various types of static and moving loads are anticipated for use under numerous conditions; consequently there are many combinations of unit stresses needed for general design. One of the important objectives of the committee was to prepare tables covering as large a range of unit stresses as may be met in general practice. A second aim was to reduce the design of members under combined bending and axial load to the same simple form as that used in the solution of common flexural problems. This second edition contains revisions of the first handbook in four main areas: extension of existing tables to include higher strength of concrete and steel, deletion of sections dealing with obsolete codes, minor improvements in figures and charts, and inclusion of new material on columns and footings.
