Book DescriptionThe most up to date structural concrete text, with the latestACI revisions Structural Concrete is the bestselling text on concretestructural design and analysis, providing the latest informationand clear explanation in an easy to understand style. Newly updatedto reflect the latest ACI 318-14 code, this sixth editionemphasizes a conceptual understanding of the subject, and buildsthe student's body of knowledge by presenting design methodsalongside relevant standards and code. Numerous examples andpractice problems help readers grasp the real-world application ofthe industry's best practices, with explanations and insight on theextensive ACI revision. Each chapter features examples using SIunits and US-SI conversion factors, and SI unit design tables areincluded for reference. Exceptional weather-resistance and stability make concrete apreferred construction material for most parts of the world. Forcivil and structural engineering applications, rebar and steelbeams are generally added during casting to provide additionalsupport. Pre-cast concrete is becoming increasingly common,allowing better quality control, the use of special admixtures, andthe production of innovative shapes that would be too complex toconstruct on site. This book provides complete guidance toward allaspects of reinforced concrete design, including the ACI revisionsthat address these new practices. Review the properties of reinforced concrete, with models forshrink and creep Understand shear, diagonal tension, axial loading, andtorsion Learn planning considerations for reinforced beams and strutand tie Design retaining walls, footings, slender columns, stairs, andmore The American Concrete Institute updates structural concrete codeapproximately every three years, and it's critical that studentslearn the most recent standards and best practices. StructuralConcrete provides the most up to date information, withintuitive explanation and detailed guidance.
