The most up-to-date material on structural concrete, including all of the ACI's most recent revisions
The current version of the best-selling textbook on concrete structural design and analysis, Structural Concrete: Theory and Design, is now available as a PDF. This book presents the most up-to-date knowledge along with a concise and clear explanation in an approachable manner. This sixth edition has recently been revised to incorporate the most recent version of the ACI 318-14 code, and it places an emphasis on having a conceptual understanding of the topic. It also helps engineering students build their knowledge base by presenting design methods alongside relevant standards and code. The reader will be able to grasp the real-world implementation of the industry's best practices with the assistance of numerous examples and practice problems, in addition to explanations and insights on the substantial ACI revision. Examples utilizing SI units and US-SI conversion factors are covered in each chapter, and SI unit design tables are provided for your convenience throughout the book.
Concrete is favored as a building material in the majority of regions across the world due to its exceptional resistance to the elements and its solidity. During the casting process, rebar and steel beams are typically added in order to offer additional support for applications relating to civil engineering and structural engineering. It is becoming more usual to employ pre-cast concrete, which enables improved quality control, the use of unique admixtures, and the manufacture of creative shapes that would be too difficult to produce on site. This ebook offers comprehensive guidance on all areas of the design of reinforced concrete, including the ACI amendments that address these new techniques.
- Shear, axial loading, diagonal tension, and torsion are all important concepts to understand.
- Create retaining walls, footings, slender columns, staircases, and other architectural elements.
- Gain an understanding of the planning issues for reinforced beams, strut and tie systems, and more.
- Examine the qualities of reinforced concrete, including models for the processes of creep and shrinkage.
It is essential for students of engineering to acquire knowledge of the most recent standards and practices that are considered to be the industry's best. The American Concrete Institute generally revises the structural concrete code once every three years. The most recent edition of Structural Concrete offers the most up-to-date information, together with clear explanations and specific recommendations.
