Design of Concrete Structures has been completely revised using the newly released American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code.

This new edition has the same dual objectives as the previous editions: first to establish a firm understanding of the behavior of structural concrete, then to develop proficiency in the methods used in current design by: Structural Concrete is the bestselling text on concrete structural design and analysis, providing the latest information and clear explanation in an easy to understand style.

Newly updated to reflect the latest ACI code, this sixth edition emphasizes a conceptual understanding of the subject, and builds the student's body of knowledge by presenting design methods alongside relevant standards and code. The art and science of structural concrete design: a symposium honoring Richard W.

Furlong. The American Concrete Institute. Founded in and headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA, the American Concrete Institute is a leading authority and resource worldwide for the development, dissemination, and adoption of its consensus-based standards, technical resources, educational programs, and proven expertise for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design.

Structural Concrete, the official journal of the fib, provides conceptual and procedural guidance in the field of concrete construction, and features peer-reviewed papers, keynote research and industry news covering all aspects of the design, construction, performance in service and demolition of concrete structures.

Main topics: design, construction, performance in service, conservation (assessment, maintenance, strengthening) and demolition of concrete structures. Using the ACI Code, this text covers the behavior and design aspects of The art and science of structural concrete design book and provides examples and homework problems.

It covers strut-and-tie models, and presents the basic mechanics of structural concrete and methods for the design of individual members for /5. Structural Concrete discusses the design and analysis of reinforced and prestressed concrete structural components and structures.

Each of the eight chapters of the book tackles a specific area of concern in structural concrete. The text first deals with the serviceability and safety, and then proceeds to the properties of materials and mix Edition: 1.

This book is the fourteenth edition of a textbook originated in by Leonard C. Urquhart and Charles E. O'Rourke, both professors of structural engineering at Cornell University at that time.

Over its remarkable year history, new editions have kept pace with research, improved materials, and new methods of analysis and design. A compilation of 13 papers on topics that include high-strength high-performance concrete columns and biaxial bending, the rold of FRP reinforcement and strut-and-tie models, the use of precast prestressed concrete in building and highway pavements, composite steel-concrete construction, and the teaching of structural concrete design.

Design of Reinforced Concrete 10th Edition by Jack McCormac and Russell Brown introduces the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design in a clear and comprehensive manner and grounded in the basic principles of mechanics of solids. Students build on their understanding of basic mechanics to learn new concepts such as compressive stress and strain in concrete while applying current ACI Code.

The book covers: * Uses of concrete floors * Structural design * Concrete used specifically for floors * Cracks and joints * Floor surface properties This book is ideal for structural engineers and others in the building and design industry that want to use a balanced approach and look beyond structural strength in the design of a good floor.

Structural engineering is a field of engineering dealing with the analysis and design of structures that support or resist loads. A structural designer has to constantly keep abreast of the latest technological developments in the field of material sciences.

The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) offers many resources for engineers, architects, contractors—almost anyone who works with reinforced concrete. The CRSI Manual of Standard Practice offers standards for estimates, detailing, fabrication and placement of reinforcing steel, and their Design Handbook (based on ACI Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete) is a.

The failure of concrete in compression and tension is discussed. Finally we examine the Eurocode and British standards in respect to the compressive strengths of concrete and different design mixes in the specification of concrete.

The main objective of a course on structural concrete design is to develop, in the engineering stu-dent, the ability to analyze and design a reinforced concrete member subjected to different types of forces in a simple and logical manner using the basic principles of statistics and some empirical for-mulas based on experimental results.

The Fourth Edition of Structural Concrete: Theory and Design brings this text fully up to date while maintaining its acclaimed easy-to-follow, logical approach. Working with the text's numerous step-by-step examples, students quickly grasp the principles and techniques of analyzing and designing reinforced and prestressed concrete elements.

Concrete Design Guide This series was produced by The Concrete Centre to enable designers to realise the potential of concrete. The Concrete Centre, part of the Mineral Products Association (MPA), is a team of qualified professionals with expertise in concrete construction, engineering and architecture.

Emphasizing a conceptual understanding of concrete design and analysis, Structural Concrete, Third Edition builds the students understanding by presenting design methods in an easy-to-understand manner supported with the use of numerous examples and problems/5(18).

They have been removed from the earlier editions of the text, and are now accessible on the book's website only. Chapter 23 contains material on the Yield Line Theory for slabs. Over my 25 years of practicing and teaching structural engineering, I have found the Yield Line Method to be an excellent design tool/5(8).
