This new, fourth edition gives practicing engineers ways to reduce the design time, while still complying with the letter and intent of the ACI Standard 318, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. The simplified design procedures presented in this book are an attempt to satisfy the various design considerations that need to be addressed in the structural design and detailing of primary framing members of a reinforced concrete building by the simplest and quickest procedures possible. It aims to arrange the information in the code in an organized step-by-step procedure for the building and member design. The formulae and language avoid complicated legal terminology without changing the intent or the objective of the code.


This bestselling publication is based on ACI 318-11. The seismic and wind load provisions were updated to comply with the International Building Code (2009 IBC). Throughout the first eleven chapters, equations, design aids, graphs, and code requirements have been updated to the current Codes. New timesaving design aids were added to expand the use of the book to a wider range of concrete strengths. Also, expanded illustrations of the theory and fundamentals were added.  Also, a new chapter on sustainable design (Chapter 12) has been included to introduce the key ideas addressed by today‚Äôs green design approaches and ways in which concrete can be used to build sustainably.

Simplified equations, design aids, graphs, and clarification of code requirements are provided throughout for use by engineering professionals seeking ways to speed and simplify their design procedures. Numerous solved examples illustrate the use of the simplified methods and are compared with exact analysis results from software.

The publication contains twelve chapters covering the design and requirements for beams, one-way slab, two-way slab systems, columns, structural walls, footings, structural detailing, formwork, fire resistance, earthquake forces and "Introduction to Sustainable Design."
