Reinforced Concrete Design
- 7th Edition
Basic Concepts of Applying the ACI 318-05 Code Rules and Formulas
By Chu-Kia Wang, Charles G.
Salmon, Jose A. Pincheira
to Reflect the 2005 ACI Building Code
Now revised to reflect the latest developments in
the field, this thoroughly updated Seventh Edition of Chu-Kia Wang,
Charles G. Salmon, and José A. Pincheira's Reinforced Concrete
Design incorporates the changes in design rules arising from the
publication of the 2005 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building
Code and Commentary (ACI 318-05).
Written for students and practicing engineers,
the book explains the basic concepts you need to understand and
properly apply the ACI Code rules and formulas.
Throughout, the emphasis is on the ACI
approach involving strength and serviceability "limit states" and
Detailed numerical examples illustrate the
general approach to design and analysis.
- Load and Strength Reduction Factors:
Example problems in all chapters are completely revised using
the load and strength reduction factors that now appear in the
main body of the 2005 code.
- Unified Design Provisions: The treatment
of the Unified Design Provisions for flexure, which are now in
the body of the 2005 ACI Code, is thoroughly revised.
- Strut-and-Tie Models: Presents entirely
new design provisions using strut-and-tie models, in accordance
with Appendix A of the 2005 ACI Code
