Structural Concrete Theory and Design Sixth Edition

Structural Concrete Theory and Design Sixth Edition

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. Once the analysis and design procedure is fully understood,

its application to different types of structures becomes simple and direct, provided that the student
has a good background in structural analysis.

The material presented in this book is based on the requirements of the American Con-
crete Institute (ACI) Building Standard 318-14, International Building Code IBC-2012, American

society of Civil Engineers Load Standards ASCE 7-10, and AASHTO LRFD Bridge Design Spec-
ifications. Also, information has been presented on material properties, including volume changes

of concrete, stress–strain behavior, creep, and elastic and nonlinear behavior or reinforced concrete.
Concrete structures are widely used in the United States and almost all over the world. The

progress in the design concept has increased in the last few decades, emphasizing safety, service-
ability, and economy. To achieve economical design of a reinforced concrete member, specific

restrictions, rules, and formulas are presented in the codes to ensure both safety and reliability of
the structure.
