For courses in Reinforced Concrete Design, Concrete Construction, Structures, Structural Analysis/Design, and Concrete in Architecture.


Revised to conform to the latest ACI code, Reinforced Concrete Design, Sixth Edition, provides a basic understanding of the strength and behavior of reinforced concrete members and simple reinforced concrete structural systems. Written with practicality and accessibility in mind, the text does not require calculus, but rather focuses on the math and fundamentals that are most appropriate for engineering technology programs and practicing technicians. This edition retains its unique chapters on prestressed concrete, formwork design and detailing, and includes a new co-author, expanded coverage of columns, over 150 homework problems and numerous sample problems complete with step-by-step solutions.

"The authors of Reinforced Concrete Design have done an excellent job by succinctly presenting the fundamental concepts and applications in the design and analysis of reinforced concrete structural members. It belongs on the bookshelves of both students and practitioners." -- Dr. Gabriel D. Alungbe, PE, Central Connecticut State University"This book blends concrete design and theory seamlessly. It will definitely be the text of choice for undergraduate concrete design courses with engineering and technology students." -- E. Terence Foster, Ph.D., PE, University of Nebraska

From the Back Cover:

This text provides the reader with a basic understanding of the strength and behavior of reinforced concrete members and simple reinforced concrete structural systems using an elementary, noncalculus, practical approach. The intent is to translate the vast amount of research and literature about reinforced concrete into an integrated source that reflects the most up-to-date information. It should serve as a valuable design guide and resource for technologists, technicians, and engineering and architectural students.

Some of the key features include:
  • Information that conforms to the latest American Concrete Institute's Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.
  • Numerous examples and a step-by-step solution format.
  • Additional homework problems, including spreadsheets.
  • Introduction of the metric system in a separate appendix with several example problems.
  • A chapter illustrating a procedure for the design of job-built forms for slabs, beams, and columns.
