Description:

Now reflecting the new 2008 ACI 318-08 Code and the new International Building Code (IBC-2006), this cutting-edge text has been extensively revised to present state-of-the-art developments in reinforced concrete. The text analyzes the design of reinforced concrete members through a unique and practical step-by-step trial and adjustment procedure. It is supplemented with flowcharts that guide readers logically through key features and underlying theory. Hundreds of photos of tests to failure of concrete elements help readers visualize this behavior. Ideal for practicing engineers who need to contend with the new revisions of the ACI, IBC, and AASHTO Codes.
