9781256873846: Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach (2nd Edition)

Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach, 2E  is the only Canadian textbook which covers the design of reinforced concrete structural members in accordance with the CSA Standard A23.3-04 Design of Concrete Structures, including its 2005, 2007, and 2009 amendments, and the National Building Code of Canada 2010.

 

Reinforced Concrete Design: A Practical Approach covers key topics for curriculum of undergraduate reinforced concrete design courses, and it is a useful learning resource for the students and a practical reference for design engineers. Since its original release in 2005 the book has been well received by readers from Canadian universities, colleges, and design offices. The authors have been commended for a simple and practical approach to the subject by students and course instructors. The book contains numerous design examples solved in a step-by-step format. The second edition is going to be available exclusively in hard cover version, and colours have been used to embellish the content and illustrations.

 

This edition contains a new chapter on the design of two-way slabs and numerous revisions of the original manuscript. Design of two-way slabs is a challenging topic for engineering students and young engineers. The authors have made an effort to give a practical design perspective to this topic, and have focused on analysis and design approaches that are widely used in structural engineering practice. The topics include design of two-way slabs for flexure, shear, and deflection control. Comprehensive revisions were made to Chapter 4 to reflect the changes contained in the 2009 amendment to CSA A23.3-04. Chapters 6 and 7 have been revised to correct an oversight related to the transverse reinforcement spacing requirements in the previous edition of the book. Chapter 8 includes a new design example on slender columns and a few additional problems. Several errors and omissions (both text and illustrations) have also been corrected. More than 300 pages of the original book have been revised in this edition.

 

Several supplements are included on the book web site. Readers will get time-limited access to the new column design software BPA COLUMN, which can generate column interaction diagrams for rectangular and cicrcular columns of variable dimensions and reinforcement amount. Additional supplements include spreadsheets related to foundation design and column load take down, and a few Power Point presentations showcasing reinforced concrete structures under construction and in completed form. Instructors will have an access to additional web site, which contains electronic version of the Instructor's Solution Manual with complete solutions to the end-of-chapter problems, and Power Point presentations containing all illustrations from the book.

 

The book is a collaborative effort between an academic and a practising engineer and reflects their unique perspectives on the subject. Svetlana Brzev, Ph.D., P.Eng. is a faculty at the Civil Engineering Department of the British Columbia Institute of Technology, Burnaby, BC. She has over 25 years of combined teaching, research, and consulting experience related to structural design and rehabilitation of concrete and masonry structures, including buildings, municipal, and industrial facilities. John Pao, MEng, PEng, Struct.Eng, is the President of Bogdonov Pao Associates Ltd. of Vancouver, BC, and  BPA Group of Companies with offices in Seattle and Los Angeles.  Mr. Pao has extensive consulting experience related to design of reinforced concrete buildings, including high-rise residential and office buildings, shopping centers, parking garages, and institutional buildings.

About the Author:

Svetlana Brzev, Ph.D., P.Eng., is faculty in the Department of Civil Engineering of the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT) in Vancouver, Canada. Dr. Brzev received her B.Eng. and M.A.Sc. degrees in Civil/Structural Engineering from the University of Belgrade, Serbia in 1984 and 1989 respectively, and a Ph.D. degree in Earthquake Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee, India in 1994. She has over 25 years of combined teaching, research, and consulting experience related to structural and seismic design and rehabilitation of reinforced concrete and masonry buildings, municipal and industrial facilities. She is registered professional engineer in British Columbia. Her keen interest in teaching and sharing professional experience motivated her to join BCIT in 2000. She has developed and taught courses related to structural and seismic design of concrete and masonry structures. Her passion for teaching was recognized in 2011 through a BCIT teaching excellence award. Dr. Brzev is a member of two CSA Technical Committees responsible for developing national standards for masonry design and construction. She has co-authored a guide on seismic design of masonry structures and more than 80 papers and reports. She is actively involved in major international initiatives related to earthquake risk reduction, and has co-authored many publications on seismic safety of concrete and masonry buildings that have been translated in several languages. She is a member of the American Concrete Institute and the Masonry Society, and served as a Director and Vice-President of the Earthquake Engineering Research Institute.

 

John Pao, M.Eng., P.Eng., Struct.Eng.,S.E., is the President of Bogdonov Pao Associates Ltd. of Vancouver, Canada, and  BPA Group of Companies with offices in Seattle and Los Angeles. Mr. Pao received his B.A.Sc. and M.Eng. degrees in Civil Engineering from the University of British Columbia in 1980 and 1984 respectively. Mr. Pao has more than 30 years of experience related to structural design of high-rise residential and office buildings, shopping centers, sport arenas, parking garages, and institutional buildings. Mr. Pao's design projects involve a variety of structural materials, including reinforced and post-tensioned concrete, structural steel, wood, and masonry. His creative and innovative design approaches have won accolades from clients and colleagues from Canada and the United States. He is a licensed engineer in over twenty jurisdictions in the United States and Canada. His passions for structural design and engineering education have inspired him to give back to the profession and co-author this textbook. Mr. Pao has taught reinforced concrete design courses at various institutions since the mid-1980s. Along with a few colleagues, he pioneered the Certificate in Structural Engineering Program, a unique continuing education program for practicing structural engineers in British Columbia. He has served as the chair of the Organizing Committee for the program since its inception in 2001. The program has been very successful and has attracted students from across Canada and abroad.  Mr. Pao's knowledge and teaching experience related to design of reinforced concrete structures are reflected in this textbook for benefit of engineering students and practising engineers.
