Preface to Design of Reinforced Concrete
This textbook presents an introduction to reinforced concrete design. We authors hope the material is written in such a manner as to interest students in the subject and to encourage them to continue its study in the years to come.
The text was prepared with an introductory three-credit course in mind, but sufficient material is included for an additional three-credit course.
With the tenth edition of this text, the contents have been updated to conform to the 2014 Building Code of the American Concrete Instinute (ACI 318-14).
Changes to this edition of the code are discussed in Section 1.7 of the text under the heading Summary of 2014 ACI Code Changes Chapter on Concrete Masonry Updated to ACI 530-13 Code.
The new chapser on strength design of reinforced concrete masonry that was added to the ninth edition of the text has been updated to conform to the 2013 issue of ACI 530.
Because this code revision imvolved a lot of reorganization, most of the code references are different.
This chapter is available only oaline (www.wiley.com/college/mccormac). Because strength design of reinforced concrete masonry is so similar to that of reinforced concrete, the authors felt that this would be a logical extension to the application of the theories developed earlier in the text.
The design of masonry lintels, walls loaded out-of-plane, and shear walls are included. An example of the design of each type of masonry element is also included to show the student some typical applications.
Spreadsheets to assist in the design of these elements are also included on the Wiley website The text is written in the order that the authors feel would follow the normal sequence of presentation for an introductory course in reinforced concrete design.
In this way, it is hoped that skipping back and forth from chapter to chapter will be minimized. The material on columns is included in three chapters (Chapters 9, 10, and 11).
Some instructors do not have time to cover the material on slender columns, so it was put in a separate chapter (Chapter 11).
The remaining material on columns was separated into two chapters in order to emphasize the difference between columns that are primarily axially loaded (Chapler 9) and those with significant bending moment combined with axial load (Chapter 10).
