Based on the latest (1995) edition of the authoritative American Concrete
Institute Building Code, this text explains the theory and practice
of reinforced concrete design in a systematic and clear fashion --
with an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations,
and photographs. The focus is on preparing students to make the many
judgment decisions required in reinforced concrete design, and reflects
the author''s extensive experience and expertise as both a teacher
of reinforced concrete design and as a member of various code committees.
