Editorial Reviews for this title:
For one-semester, junior/senior-level and graduate courses in Reinforced Concrete in the department of civil engineering.This cutting-edge text analyzes the design of reinforced concrete members through a unique and practical step-by-step trial and adjustment procedure. The narrative is supplemented with flow charts to guide students logically through the learning process. Ample photographs of instructional testing of concrete members decreases the need for actual laboratory testing. This illustrates the failure of various types of structural members as well as demonstrates how the designed member behaves at ultimate load.
Extensively revised to reflect the new ACI 318 Building Code, this cutting-edge text analyzes the design of reinforced concrete members through a unique and practical step-by-step trial and adjustment procedure. Supplementing text material with flow charts to logically guide students through the learning process, the book decreases the necessity of actual laboratory testing by offering ample photographs of instructional testing of concrete members. This illustrates the failure of various types of structural members as well as demonstrates how the designed member behaves at ultimate load.
From the Publisher
Reinforced Concrete-A Fundamental Approach, Fifth Edition Edward G. Nawy The fifth edition of this highly acclaimed work reflects the very latest ACI-02 Building Code and includes these major changes and additions: * Strain Limits Design Method in all design examples as mandated in the new code, using the new load factors and strength reduction factors. * An updated chapter on seismic design of buildings to comply with the major changes in the ACI 318 Code, and the new International Building Code provisions (IBC 2000-2003) on seismic design. The chapter has new several additional examples on confinement, frames, and shear wall design. * A new chapter on LRFD design of bridge deck structures in accordance with AASHTO 2002. * A new section on the strut-and-tie modeling for the design of reinforced concrete deep beams, with an extensive design example using the ACI 318-02 appendix provisions for this method. * A comprehensive chapter on concrete materials and design of concrete mixtures for normal strength and high-strength, high-performance concretes. This is a self-contained textbook, that can be used for one-semester undergraduate- or graduate-level courses in reinforced concrete in standard civil engineering programs. It is equally useful for the practicing engineer. It is the only book that closely and systematically applies procedural flowcharts throughout, which simplify the understanding and application of the subject in design. This edition provides thorough coverage of short- and long-term material behavior, design of concrete mixtures, reliability and structural safety, serviceability behavior of beams and two-way slabs and plates, torsion and shear, design of two-way structural slab and plate systems, continuity in concrete structures, LRFD design of bridge decks, and seismic design of high-rise buildings in seismic zones. An appendix contains Q-BASIC computer programs with typical program documentation and solutions, and an extended appendix of monograms and tables using the new load factors, strength reduction factors, and limit strains design procedures mandated in the new ACI 318-02 code. Comprehensive sketches, working drawings, end-of-chapter problems, pictures of actual structural tests to failure, and flowcharts appear throughout the book. About the Author Dr. Edward G. Nawy is a distinguished professor with the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey. He has been active in the ACI and PCI since 1949 and is internationally recognized for his extensive research in the fields of reinforced and prestressed concrete, particularly in the areas of serviceability and crack control. Dr. Nawy's work has been published in technical journals worldwide (over 160 technical papers). He is the author of Prestressed Concrete, Fourth Edition, (Prentice Hall, 2003), High Strength High Performance Concrete, Second Edition, (Wiley, 2001) and Concrete Construction Engineering Handbook (CRC Press, 1998). He has been the recipient of several major awards, including the Henry L. Kennedy Award and the Robert E. Philleo Research Council Award, both from the American Concrete Institute. He is a licensed Professional Engineer in the States of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, and Florida, an Evaluator for the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), and has been a consultant in structural engineering throughout the United States.
