The book uses a straight-forward, step-by-step, problem-solution format with an abundance of fully-worked sample problems. The book provides an elementary, non-Calculus, practical approach to the design and analysis of reinforced concrete structural members. It translates a vast amount of information and data in an integrated source that reflects the latest standards and that provides a basic, workable understanding of the strength and behavior of reinforced concrete members and simple concrete structural systems. For anyone interested in Reinforced Concrete Design, Concrete Construction, Structural Analysis and Design, and Structures.

Spiegel and Limbrunner completely revise this book to conform to the latest American Concrete Institute Building Code (ACI 318-89). Practical and straight-forward, this problem/solution oriented approach explores the design and analysis of reinforced concrete structural members. Written at an appropriate mathematical level for engineering technology, treatments are simple and appropriate. The strength method is utilized (in accordance with ACI 318-89), and special chapters are furnished to provide a conceptual approach on topics such as prestressed concrete and the detailing of reinforced concrete structures.Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

The primary objective of Reinforced Concrete Design, Fifth Edition, remains the same as that of previous editions, to furnish the reader with a basic understanding of the strength and behavior of reinforced concrete members and simple reinforced concrete structural systems.
With relevant reinforced concrete research and literature continuing to become available at a rapid rate, it is the intent of this book to translate this vast amount of information and data into an integrated source that reflects the latest information available. It is not intended to be a comprehensive theoretical treatise on the subject, because we believe that such a document could easily obscure the fundamentals that we strive to emphasize in the engineering technology programs. In addition, we believe that adequate comprehensive books on reinforced concrete design do exist for those who seek the theoretical background, the research studies, and more rigorous applications.
This fifth edition has been prepared with the primary objective of updating its contents to conform to the latest Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-99) of the American Concrete Institute. Since the ACI Code serves as the design standard in the United States, it is strongly recommended that the code be used as a companion publication to this book.
In addition to the necessary changes to conform to the new code, some sections have been edited, some new homework problems (including some spreadsheet problems) have been added, and others have been edited. Answers to selected problems are furnished at the back of the text.
Throughout the five editions, the text content has remained primarily an elementary, noncalculus, practical approach to the design. and analysis of reinforced concrete structural members using numerous examples and a step-by-step solution format. In addition, there are chapters that provide a conceptual approach to such topics as prestressed concrete and detailing of reinforced concrete structures. The metric system (SI), the use of which is gradually gaining momentum in the reinforced concrete design and construction field in the United States, is introduced in a separate appendix with several example problems.
Form design is an important consideration in most structural design problems involving concrete members, and Chapter 12 illustrates a procedure for the design of job-built forms for slabs, beams, and columns. Appropriate tables are included that will expedite the design process.
This book has been thoroughly tested over the years in our engineering technology programs and should serve as a valuable design guide and resource for technologists, technicians, and engineering and architectural students. In addition, it will aid engineers and architects preparing for state licensing examinations for professional registration.
Thanks are extended to the reviewers of this edition: Dr. Gabriel D. Alungbe, PE, Central Connecticut State University, and E. Terence Foster, Ph.D., PE, University of Nebraska. As in the past, appreciation is extended to students, past and present, and colleagues who with their constructive comments, criticisms, and enthusiasm have provided input and encouragement for this edition.
