Structural Concrete Theory and Design Fifth Version by M. Nadim Hassoun and Akthem Al-Manaseer


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.
