Preface to the Second Edition The second edition of this book revises the previous text to conform to the latest American Concrete Institute (ACI) Code 318-99. It also includes additional sections, revisions, and editing of various chapters of the book. In Chapter 1, Section 1.11 has been added to help the student understand the accuracy of calculations in engineering design. Additional examples are introduced in Chapters 3 and 4 to elaborate on the behavior of reinforced concrete beams at failure and to combine structural analysis with concrete design. In Chapter 6, the section on crack control has been revised to conform to the ACI Code limits on distribution of flexural reinforcement. The code also made some changes in the shear for circular sections and spiral lap splices and introduced a limit on column slenderness ratio. These changes are covered in Chapters 8,10 and 12, respectively. An additional section on Coulomb theory for soil pressure has been introduced in Chapter 13. Revisions are also made in the design for torsion (Chapter 15) and in bars layout and extensions in two-way slabs without beams (Chapter 17). A new section on partially prestressed concrete has been added to Chapter 20. Structural aid tables are added as Appendix C to help the student and reader to determine the moment, shear, and deflection for simple and continuous beams. The book also contains numerous examples in International System (SI) units, summaries at the end of each chapter, and flow charts (in Chapter 21). I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the reviewers for their constructive comments to revise the book in this final second edition. Finally, the book is written to provide basic and reference materials on the analysis and design of reinforced concrete members in a simple, practical, and logical approach. Because this is a required course for seniors in civil engineering, I believe it will be accepted by reinforced concrete instructors at different universities as well as designers who can make use of the information in this book in their practical design of reinforced concrete structures. A solutions manual is provided. Software for the design of different reinforced concrete members is also available on a ftp site maintained by the publisher. Instructors should have received login instructions for themselves and their students from their Prentice Hall Engineering sales representative. All other users of the text should e-mail publisher at Prentice Hall at www.prenhall.com/hassoun to request login information. Preface to the First Edition The main objective of a course on reinforced concrete design is to develop, in the engineering student, the ability to analyze and design a reinforced concrete member subjected to different types of forces in a simple and logical manner using the basic principles of statics and some empirical formulas based on experimental results. Once the analysis and design procedure is fully understood, its application to different types of structures becomes simple and direct, provided that the student has a good background in structural analysis. The material presented in this book is based on the requirements of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code (318-95). Also, information has been presented on material properties, including volume changes of concrete, stress-strain behavior, creep, and elastic and nonlinear behavior of reinforced concrete. Concrete structures are widely used in the United States and almost all over the world. The progress in the design concept has increased in the last few decades, emphasizing safety, serviceability, and economy. To achieve economical design of a reinforced concrete member, specific restrictions, rules, and formulas are presented in the codes to ensure both safety and reliability of the structure.
