Now reflecting the new 2008 ACI 318-08 Code and the new International Building Code (IBC-2006), this cutting-edge text has been extensively revised to present state-of-the-art developments in reinforced concrete.The text analyzes the design of reinforced concrete members through a unique and practical step-by-step trial and adjustment procedure. It is supplemented with flowcharts that guide readers logically through key features and underlying theory. Hundreds of photos of tests to failure of concrete elements help readers visualize this behavior.Ideal for practicing engineers who need to contend with the new revisions of the ACI, IBC, and AASHTO Codes.

Author Biography

Dr. Edward G. Nawy is a distinguished professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. He has been active in the ACI and PCI since 1959 and is internationally recognized for his extensive research work in the fields of reinforced and prestressed concrete, particularly in the areas of crack and deflection control. Dr. Nawy has published more than 175 papers in numerous technical journals worldwide. He is also the author of several books, including Prestressed Concrete: A Fundamental Approach, Fifth Edition (2006), published by Prentice Hall; Fundamentals of High Performance Concrete , Second Edition (2001), published by John Wiley and Sons; and Concrete Construction Engineering Handbook, Second Edition (2008), published by Taylor and Francis/CRC Press. He has been the recipient of several major awards, including the Henry L. Kennedy Award of the ACI, the ACI Concrete Research Council Award, the ACI Design Practice Award, honorary membership of the ACI, honorary professorship with the Nanjing Institute of Technology, and the emeritus honorary membership of the Transportation Research Board Committee on Concrete. Dr. Nawy is a licensed Professional Engineer in the states of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, California, and Florida, Evaluator for the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), Chartered Civil Engineer overseas, and has been a consultant in forensic engineering throughout the United States.
