Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams, Second Edition
 
An In-Depth Review of Concrete Design Methods and Standards
Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams presents the concrete design and analysis methods most needed by civil and structural engineering students.  The book’s 12 chapters provide a concise but thorough review of concrete theory, code application, design principles, and structural analysis. The 51 example problems demonstrate how to apply concepts, codes, and equations, and over 40 figures and tables provide essential support material. A complete nomenclature list defines the industry-standard variables and symbols used in each chapter.
 
This book includes code references to familiarize you with exam-adopted codes, such as ASCE7 and ACI 318. It also includes 35 multiple-choice problems and 2 scenario-based design problems to enhance your problem-solving skills. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your solving approach. On exam day, you can use this book’s thorough index to quickly locate important codes and concepts.

About the Author:

C. Dale Buckner is a registered professional civil engineer in Virginia. Dr. Buckner has consulted on engineering projects, and he now teaches in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the Virginia Military Institute. He holds bachelor of science, master of science, and doctorate degrees in civil engineering from North Carolina State University. He has authored several Structural Engineering and Civil PE exam review books, and he has served as a long-time advisor in PPI's Civil PE Passing Zone.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

This book is designed to complement and be used with PPI’s Civil Engineering Reference Manual (CERM), Structural Depth Reference Manual (CEST), or Structural Engineering Reference Manual (STRM). CERM, CEST, and STRM are the basic texts for anyone studying for the civil PE or structural engineering (SE) exams, and each book contains an introduction to the basic concepts and most common applications pertaining to concrete design.

It is essential that this book be used with the American Concrete Institute’s Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318) and Commentary (ACI 318R). The following chapters are meant to explain and clarify those aspects of the building code that are most likely to come up during the civil PE and SE exams, but it will be frequently assumed along the way that you can refer directly to the code itself when necessary.

Throughout the book, citations to code criteria refer to the 2011 edition of the ACI code. For example, the citation “ACI Sec. 7.12” refers to Sec. 7.12 of ACI 318-11. For the problems covered in this book, however, the differences between ACI 318-08 and ACI 318-11 are minor and amount to no more than the notation used for a few variables. That means you can study this book with either ACI 318-08 or ACI 318-11 at hand.

When it comes to the exam itself, of course, it’s important to bring the editions of the design standards that the current exam is based on. Check the NCEES website at ncees.org for the current design standards for your exam. You can also check PPI’s website at ppi2pass.com/civil or ppi2pass.com/structural for current information and answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs) about the civil PE or SE exams.
