The sixth edition of this bestselling textbook provides the same philosophical approach that has gained wide acceptance since the first edition was published in 1965. The strength and behavior of concrete elements are treated with the primary objective of explaining and justifying the rules and formulas of the ACI Building Code. The treatment is incorporated into the chapters in such a way that the reader may study the concepts in a logical sequence in detail or merely accept a qualitative explanation and proceed directly to the design process using the ACI Code. Detailed numerical examples illustrate the general approach to design and analysis. The content of the new edition reflects the continuing change occuring in design procedures for reinforced concrete stuctures. Emphasis throughout is on the ACI approach involving strength and serviceability "limit states" and factored loads. The sixth edition of Reinforced Concrete Design incorporates the changes in design rules arising from the publication of the 1995 ACI Building Code and Commentary including the new rules for reinforcing bar development, design for torsion, revised provisions for the design of long columns, and the new minimum reinforcement for flexure provisions.
Professors will find that there is sufficient material for a two-semester sequence in reinforced concrete design, while practicing engineers will appreciate the text's comprehensive nature. For those professors and engineers who feel that an awareness of SI units is important, the SI version of the ACI Code equations appear in footnotes and some examples and problems are presented in SI units.

Updated 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 factored loads. Detailed numerical examples illustrate the general approach to design and analysis.
Chu-Kia Wang, is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Wisconsin - Madison. His fields of interest include structural engineering, structural analysis and design, and computerized matrix method of analysis.
