The leading structural concrete design reference for over two decades—updated to reflect the latest ACI 318-19 code
A go-to resource for structural engineering students and professionals for over twenty years, this newly updated text on concrete structural design and analysis reflects the most recent ACI 318-19 code. It emphasizes student comprehension by presenting design methods alongside relevant codes and standards. It also offers numerous examples (presented using SI units and US-SI conversion factors) and practice problems to guide students through the analysis and design of each type of structural member.
New to Structural Concrete: Theory and Design, Seventh Edition are code provisions for transverse reinforcement and shear in wide beams, hanger reinforcement, and bi-directional interaction of one-way shear. This edition also includes the latest information on two-way shear strength, ordinary walls, seismic loads, reinforcement detailing and analysis, and materials requirements. This book covers the historical background of structural concrete; advantages and disadvantages; codes and practice; and design philosophy and concepts. It then launches into a discussion of the properties of reinforced concrete, and continues with chapters on flexural analysis and design; deflection and control of cracking; development length of reinforcing bars; designing with the strut-and-tie method; one-way slabs; axially loaded columns; and more.
- Updated to align with the new ACI 318-19 code with new code provisions to include: transverse reinforcement and shear in wide beams, hanger reinforcement, bi-directional interaction of one-way shear, and reference to ACI certifications
- Includes dozens of worked examples that explain the analysis and design of structural members
- Offers updated information on two-way shear strength, seismic loads, materials requirements, and more
- Improves the design ability of students by explaining code requirements and restrictions
- Provides examples in SI units in every chapter as well as conversion factors from customary units to SI
- Offers instructors access to a solutions manual via the book’s companion website
Structural Concrete: Theory and Design, Seventh Edition is an excellent text for undergraduate and graduate students in civil and structural engineering programs. It will also benefit concrete designers, structural engineers, and civil engineers focused on structures.
The primary goal of a course on structural concrete design is to develop, within the engineering scholar, the flexibility to research and design a strengthened concrete member subjected to various kinds of forces in a easy and logical method utilizing the fundamental ideas of statistics and some empirical formulation based mostly on experimental outcomes. As soon as the evaluation and design process is totally understood, its utility to various kinds of buildings turns into easy and direct, supplied that the scholar has an excellent background in structural evaluation.The fabric offered on this guide is predicated on the necessities of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Constructing Normal 318-11, Worldwide Constructing Code IBC-2012, American society of Civil Engineers Load Requirements ASCE 7-10, and AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Specs. Additionally, info has been offered on materials properties, together with quantity modifications of concrete, stress–pressure habits, creep, and elastic and nonlinear habits or strengthened concrete. Concrete buildings are extensively utilized in the USA and nearly everywhere in the world.
The progress within the design idea has elevated in the previous few many years, emphasizing security, serviceability, and financial system. To realize economical design of a strengthened concrete member, particular restrictions, guidelines, and formulation are offered within the codes to make sure each security and reliability of the construction. Engineering companies count on civil engineering graduates to grasp the code guidelines and, consequently, to have the ability to design a concrete construction successfully and economically with minimal coaching interval or overhead prices.
The guide is an outgrowth of the authors’ lecture notes, which signify their educating and industrial expertise over the previous 32 years. The economic expertise of the authors consists of the design and development supervision and administration of many strengthened, prestressed, and precast concrete buildings. That is along with the consulting work they carried out for worldwide design and development companies, skilled registration in the UK, Canada, and different international locations, and a complete information of different European codes on the design of concrete buildings. The guide is written to cowl two programs in strengthened concrete design.
Relying on the proficiency required, the primary course could cowl Chapters 1 by means of 7, 9, 10, 11, and 13, whereas the second course could cowl the remaining chapters. Elements of the late chapters might also be taught within the first course as wanted. Plenty of non-obligatory sections have been included in varied chapters. These sections are indicated by an asterisk within the Contents and could simply be distinguished from those who kind the fundamental necessities of the primary course. The non-obligatory sections could also be coated within the second course or relegated to a studying task.
Temporary descriptions of the chapters are given under. The primary chapter of the guide presents info on the historic growth of concrete, codes of apply, masses and security provisions, and design philosophy and ideas. The second chapter offers with the properties of concrete in addition to metal reinforcement used within the design of strengthened concrete buildings, together with stress–pressure relationships, modulus of elasticity and shear modulus of concrete, shrinkage, creep, fireplace resistance, high-performance concrete, and fibrous concrete. As a result of the present ACI Code emphasizes the power strategy based mostly on pressure limits, this strategy has been adopted all through the textual content.
