Reinforced Concrete Mechanics and Design

This textbook, based on the latest edition of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code, prepares beginners and experienced designers to utilize reinforced concrete design. The text includes sections on the statistical evaluation of concrete strengths; 28-day versus 56-day compression strengths; the differences between circulatory torsion and warping torsion; the design of tension-controlled and compression-controlled cross sections; stress-strain curves for concrete, mixing water, shotcrete, and high-alumina cement; the properties of fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) reinforcement and its use in beam design; and the design of headed stud shear reinforcement in two-way slabs. The text is designed to remain current until 2008, applying the latest methods in ACI Code. The book features an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations, and photographs.
