The quality and testing of materials used in construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate AWS standard. Uses of the Code include adoption by reference in general building codes, and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner. The Code is written in a format that allows such reference without change to its language. Therefore, background details or suggestions for carrying out the requirements or intent of the Code portion cannot be included. The Commentary is provided for this purpose. Some of the considerations of the committee in developing the Code portion are discussed within the Commentary, with emphasis given to the explanation of new or revised provisions. Much of the research data referenced in preparing the Code is cited for the user desiring to study individual questions in greater detail. Other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements of the Code are also cited.

The most up to date structural concrete text, with the latestACI revisions Structural Concrete is the bestselling text on concretestructural design and analysis, providing the latest informationand clear explanation in an easy to understand style. Newly updatedto reflect the latest ACI 318-14 code, this sixth editionemphasizes a conceptual understanding of the subject, and buildsthe student's body of knowledge by presenting design methodsalongside relevant standards and code. Numerous examples andpractice problems help readers grasp the real-world application ofthe industry's best practices, with explanations and insight on theextensive ACI revision. Each chapter features examples using SIunits and US-SI conversion factors, and SI unit design tables areincluded for reference. Exceptional weather-resistance and stability make concrete apreferred construction material for most parts of the world. Forcivil and structural engineering applications, rebar and steelbeams are generally added during casting to provide additionalsupport. Pre-cast concrete is becoming increasingly common,allowing better quality control, the use of special admixtures, andthe production of innovative shapes that would be too complex toconstruct on site. This book provides complete guidance toward allaspects of reinforced concrete design, including the ACI revisionsthat address these new practices. Review the properties of reinforced concrete, with models forshrink and creep Understand shear, diagonal tension, axial loading, andtorsion Learn planning considerations for reinforced beams and strutand tie Design retaining walls, footings, slender columns, stairs, andmore The American Concrete Institute updates structural concrete codeapproximately every three years, and it's critical that studentslearn the most recent standards and best practices. StructuralConcrete provides the most up to date information, withintuitive explanation and detailed guidance.

This text is intended primarily for third- or fourth-year Civil Engineering students at Canadian universities. It can also be used in graduate courses. Thoroughly Canadianized, this text provides accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive coverage of Canadian engineering design and practice. The First Canadian Edition of Reinforced Concrete has been adapted from the U.S. third edition text to reflect the Canadian concrete design code: A23.3-94 Design of Concrete Structures issued by the Canadian Standards Association. With the exception of the CPCA Concrete Design Handbook, this is the first Canadian textbook that is compatible with the current Canadian design code. (The CPCA Handbook, while used in many Canadian engineering programs, is not considered an adequate learning tool for students). In our book, the theory and practice of reinforced concrete design is explained in a systematic and clear fashion--with an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations, and diagrams. The focus is on preparing students to make the many judgement decisions required in reinforced concrete design. Lead author James MacGregor is a renowned authority on reinforced concrete design. He has been a distinguished teacher and a member of various code committees in Canada.

A structural design book with a code-connected focus, Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Second Edition introduces the principles and practices of structural design. This book covers the section properties, design values, reference tables, and other design aids required to accomplish complete structural designs in accordance with the codes. What’s New in This Edition: Reflects all the latest revised codes and standards The text material has been thoroughly reviewed and expanded, including a new chapter on concrete design Suitable for combined design coursework in wood, steel, and concrete Includes all essential material—the section properties, design values, reference tables, and other design aids required to accomplish complete structural designs according to the codes This book uses the LRFD basis of design for all structures This updated edition has been expanded into 17 chapters and is divided into four parts. The first section of the book explains load and resistance factor design, and explores a unified approach to design. The second section covers wood design and specifically examines wood structures. It highlights sawn lumber, glued laminated timber, and structural composite/veneer lumber. The third section examines steel structures. It addresses the AISC 2010 revisions to the sectional properties of certain structural elements, as well as changes in the procedure to design the slip-critical connection. The final section includes a chapter on T beams and introduces doubly reinforced beams. Principles of Structural Design: Wood, Steel, and Concrete, Second Edition was designed to be used for joint coursework in wood, steel, and concrete design.
