Design of Reinforced Concrete – Jack C. McCormac, Russell H. Brown – 9th Edition


The ninth edition of the best-selling Design of Reinforced Concrete continues the tradition of earlier editions by introducing the fundamentals of reinforced concrete design in a clear and understandable manner and grounded in the basic principles of mechanics of solids. Students build on their understanding of basic mechanics to learn new concepts such as compressive stress and strain in concrete while applying current ACI Code.

The ninth edition has been updated to conform to the 2011 Building Code of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-11).

Although written for an introductory three credit hour undergraduate course on reinforced concrete design, this textbook also has sufficient material for a second three credit hour course. This book is also useful for practicing engineers, as it presents the latest requirements of the ACI design code.

With its accessible approach and streamlined coverage of theory, engineers will quickly learn how to apply the concepts in the eighth edition. The contents have been updated to conform to the 2008 building code of the American Concrete Institute (ACI 318-08). New spreadsheets are included that arm the reader with tools to analyze and design reinforced concrete elements and quickly compare alternative solutions. A new chapter on seismic design explores the issues related to the design of reinforced concrete structures to resist earthquakes. The new materials section also provides engineers with details and examples on how to design shear walls for combined axial load and bending moment.
