Designed primarily as a text for undergraduate students of Civil Engineering for their first course on Limit State Design of Reinforced Concrete, this compact and well-organized text covers all the fundamental concepts in a highly readable style. The text conforms to the provision of the latest revision of Indian Code of Practice for Plain and Reinforced Concrete, IS : 456 (2000). First six chapters deal with fundamentals of limit states design of reinforced concrete. The objective of last two chapters (including design aids in appendix) is to initiate the readers in practical design of concrete structures. The text gives detailed discussion of basic concepts, behaviour of the various structural components under loads, and development of fundamental expressions for analysis and design. It also presents efficient and systematic procedures for solving design problems. In addition to the discussion of basis for design calculations, a large number of worked-out practical design examples based on the current design practices have been included to illustrate the basic principles of reinforced concrete design.Besides students, practising engineers would find this text extremely useful.

Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach, 2E is the only Canadian textbook which covers the design of reinforced concrete structural members in accordance with the CSA Standard A23.3-04 Design of Concrete Structures, including its 2005, 2007, and 2009 amendments, and the National Building Code of Canada 2010. Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach covers key topics for curriculum of undergraduate reinforced concrete design courses, and it is a useful learning resource for the students and a practical reference for design engineers. Since its original release in 2005 the book has been well received by readers from Canadian universities, colleges, and design offices. The authors have been commended for a simple and practical approach to the subject by students and course instructors. The book contains numerous design examples solved in a step-by-step format. The second edition is going to be available exclusively in hard cover version, and colours have been used to embellish the content and illustrations. This edition contains a new chapter on the design of two-way slabs and numerous revisions of the original manuscript. Design of two-way slabs is a challenging topic for engineering students and young engineers. The authors have made an effort to give a practical design perspective to this topic, and have focused on analysis and design approaches that are widely used in structural engineering practice. The topics include design of two-way slabs for flexure, shear, and deflection control. Comprehensive revisions were made to Chapter 4 to reflect the changes contained in the 2009 amendment to CSA A23.3-04. Chapters 6 and 7 have been revised to correct an oversight related to the transverse reinforcement spacing requirements in the previous edition of the book. Chapter 8 includes a new design example on slender columns and a few additional problems. Several errors and omissions (both text and illustrations) have also been corrected. More than 300 pages of the original book have been revised in this edition. Several supplements are included on the book web site. Readers will get time-limited access to the new column design software BPA COLUMN, which can generate column interaction diagrams for rectangular and cicrcular columns of variable dimensions and reinforcement amount. Additional supplements include spreadsheets related to foundation design and column load take down, and a few Power Point presentations showcasing reinforced concrete structures under construction and in completed form. Instructors will have an access to additional web site, which contains electronic version of the Instructor's Solution Manual with complete solutions to the end-of-chapter problems, and Power Point presentations containing all illustrations from the book. The book is a collaborative effort between an academic and a practising engineer and reflects their unique perspectives on the subject. Svetlana Brzev, Ph.D., P.Eng. is a faculty at the Civil Engineering Department of the British Columbia Institute of Technology, Burnaby, BC. She has over 25 years of combined teaching, research, and consulting experience related to structural design and rehabilitation of concrete and masonry structures, including buildings, municipal, and industrial facilities. John Pao, MEng, PEng, Struct.Eng, is the President of Bogdonov Pao Associates Ltd. of Vancouver, BC, and BPA Group of Companies with offices in Seattle and Los Angeles. Mr. Pao has extensive consulting experience related to design of reinforced concrete buildings, including high-rise residential and office buildings, shopping centers, parking garages, and institutional buildings.

The best-selling Reinforced Concrete Design provides a straightforward and practical introduction to the principles and methods used in the design of reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The book contains many worked examples to illustrate the various aspects of design that are presented in the text. The seventh edition of the text has been fully revised and updated to reflect the interpretation and use of Eurocode 2 since its introduction. Students and practitioners, both in the UK and elsewhere in the world where Eurocode 2 has been adopted, will find it a concise guide both to the basic theory and to appropriate design procedures. Design charts, tables and formulae are included as design aids and, for ease of reference, an appendix contains a summary of important design information. Features of the seventh edition are: • Completely revised to reflect recent experience of the usage of Eurocode 2 since its introduction in 2004 and its adoption in the UK as a design standard in 2010 • Further examples of the theory put into practice • A new chapter on water retaining structures in accordance with Eurocode 2, Part 3 • New sections on, for example, design processes including conceptual design, deep beams and an expanded treatment of designing for fire resistance

An exploration of the world of concrete as it applies to the construction of buildings, Reinforced Concrete Design of Tall Buildings provides a practical perspective on all aspects of reinforced concrete used in the design of structures, with particular focus on tall and ultra-tall buildings. Written by Dr. Bungale S. Taranath, this work explains the fundamental principles and state-of-the-art technologies required to build vertical structures as sound as they are eloquent. Dozens of cases studies of tall buildings throughout the world, many designed by Dr. Taranath, provide in-depth insight on why and how specific structural system choices are made. The book bridges the gap between two approaches: one based on intuitive skills and experience and the other based on computer skills and analytical techniques. Examining the results when experiential intuition marries unfathomable precision, this book discusses: The latest building codes, including ASCE/SEI 7-05, IBC-06/09, ACI 318-05/08, and ASCE/SEI 41-06 Recent developments in studies of seismic vulnerability and retrofit design Earthquake hazard mitigation technology, including seismic base isolation, passive energy dissipation, and damping systems Lateral bracing concepts and gravity-resisting systems Performance based design trends Dynamic response spectrum and equivalent lateral load procedures Using realistic examples throughout, Dr. Taranath shows how to create sound, cost-efficient high rise structures. His lucid and thorough explanations provide the tools required to derive systems that gracefully resist the battering forces of nature while addressing the specific needs of building owners, developers, and architects. The book is packed with broad-ranging material from fundamental principles to the state-of-the-art technologies and includes techniques thoroughly developed to be highly adaptable. Offering complete guidance, instructive examples, and color illustrations, the author develops several approaches for designing tall buildings. He demonstrates the benefits of blending imaginative problem solving and rational analysis for creating better structural systems.
