Structural Concrete Theory and Design

This comprehensive textbook on the theory and design of structural concrete will help students understand the practical aspects of the modern design of concrete structures. The analysis and design of both reinforced and prestressed concrete elements are presented. The material presented in this book is based on the requirements of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code (318-05). Written to cover a two-course sequence, this book should also serve as a reference for the practicing engineer and those interested in concrete materials and design. The chapters are as follows: (1) Introduction (historical background, codes of practice, loads and safety provisions, and design philosophy and concepts); (2) Properties of Reinforced Concrete; (3) Flexural Analysis of Reinforced Concrete Beams; (4) Flexural Design of Reinforced Concrete Beams; (5) Alternative Design Methods; (6) Deflection and Control of Cracking; (7) Development Length of Reinforcing Bars; (8) Shear and Diagonal Tension; (9) One-Way Slabs; (10) Axially Loaded Columns; (11) Members in Compression and Bending; (12) Slender Columns; (13) Footings; (14) Retaining Walls; (15) Design for Torsion; (16) Continuous Beams and Frames; (17) Design of Two-Way Slabs; (18) Stairs; (19) Introduction to Prestressed Concrete; and (20) Seismic Design of Reinforced Concrete Structures. In the appendix, design tables using U.S. customary units and SI units are presented.
