A valuable, practical guide to mastering the basics of reinforced concrete design
Reinforced Concrete Structures: Analysis and Design introduces engineers, architects, and students to the analysis, design, and detailing of cast-in-place, non-pre-stressed concrete structures that are located in areas of low seismic risk. This authoritative resource covers all of the material needed to design and detail a complete concrete building. All components of a typical concrete building are fully addressed.
Reinforced Concrete Structures: Analysis and Design:
- Covers all of the information an architect, engineer, and/or student needs to know about the latest design requirements for reinforced concrete buildings
- Is filled with time-saving design aids and flowcharts
- Offers comprehensive coverage of all major building code requirements, including the 2009 International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC)
- Includes worked-out, practical examples and problems at the end of each chapter
Complete coverage of reinforced concrete structure analysis and design:
Materials; General Consideration for Analysis and Design; General Requirements for Strength and Serviceability; General Requirement for Flexure and Axial Loads; Beams and One-Way Slabs; Two-way Slabs; Columns; Walls; Stairs; Foundations; Retaining Walls
A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
Reinforced Concrete Structures explains the underlying principles of reinforced concrete design and covers the analysis, design, and detailing requirements in the 2008 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary and the 2009 International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC).
This authoritative resource discusses reinforced concrete members and provides techniques for sizing the cross section, calculating the required amount of reinforcement, and detailing the reinforcement. Design procedures and flowcharts guide you through code requirements, and worked-out examples demonstrate the proper application of the design provisions.
COVERAGE INCLUDES: Mechanics of reinforced concrete Material properties of concrete and reinforcing steel Considerations for analysis and design of reinforced concrete structures Requirements for strength and serviceability Principles of the strength design method Design and detailing requirements for beams, one-way slabs, two-way slabs, columns, walls, and foundations
