Arthur H Nilson, David Darwin and Charles W. Dolan "Design of Concrete Structures, 13th Edition"
Published by McGraw-Hill | August 2003 | ISBN: 0072483059 | PDF Format, 783 pages | English
Concrete is a stonelike material obtained by permitting a carefully proportioned mixture of cement, sand and gravel or other aggregate, and water to harden in forms of the shape and dimensions of the desired structure.
The book presents the basic mechanics of structural concrete and methods for the design of individual members for bending, shear, torsion, and axial force, and also provides detail in the various types of structural systems applications.
This 13th Edition of the classic text, Design of Concrete Structures, is completely revised using the newly released 2002 ACI Code. The text covers the behavior and design aspects of concrete and provides thoroughly updated examples and homework problems throughout.
Featuring a new chapter 10 to cover strut-and-tie models, yet retaining the two-pronged objectives of establishing a firm understanding of the behavior of reinforced concrete, and developing proficiency in the methods used in current design practice.
