Structural Concrete 2e : Theory and Design
NEW - Extensive revisions to chapter content-Adheres to ACI Code 318-99, provides students with the most up-to-date information in the field.
NEW - Accuracy of calculations-Section 1.11, helps students understand the accuracy of calculations in engineering design.
NEW - Additional examples in Chapters 3 and 4-Elaborate on the behavior of reinforced concrete beams at failure and combine structural analysis with concrete design, students need to understand failure concepts before they can use design formulas.
NEW - Structural Aid Tables, Appendix C, helps the students to determine moments, shear forces, and deflection of beams which are needed for the design of beams.
NEW - Section on Coulomb theory for soil pressure - Added to Chapter 13, provides an alternative approach to calculate the soil pressure considering the friction of soil on retaining walls.
NEW - Section on partially prestressed concrete - Added to Chapter 20. Explains the range of partial prestressing between a lower limit of reinforced concrete and an upper limit of full prestressing.
Examples in SI units-Found in every chapter, helps the students understand the design approach using SI units, which is beginning to be used in the U.S. and other countries.
In-depth treatment of the ultimate strength concept of reinforced concrete, explains the concept of concrete beams behavior up to failure with mathematical analysis of forces developed in concrete and steel.
Detailed, yet easy to follow examples in each chapter, explains the analysis and design of structural members.
Unique chapters on the design of different types of stairs and the design of curved beams, provides information not covered in other books on concrete. Chapter-end summaries, helps students review the material presented in each chapter separately.
A software program is also available, enables students to check each step of their calculations for analysis problems and to explore options for designing reinforced concrete members.
Unified design method-Chapter 22, this new method is described in Appendix B of the ACI Code to simplify and unify the design requirements for reinforced and prestressed flexural and compression members.
