**The leading structural concrete design reference for over two decades—updated to reflect the latest ACI 318-19 code**

A go-to resource for structural engineering students and professionals for over twenty years, this newly updated text on concrete structural design and analysis reflects the most recent ACI 318-19 code. It emphasizes student comprehension by presenting design methods alongside relevant codes and standards. It also offers numerous examples (presented using SI units and US-SI conversion factors) and practice problems to guide students through the analysis and design of each type of structural member.

New to* Structural Concrete: Theory and Design, Seventh Edition* are code provisions for transverse reinforcement and shear in wide beams, hanger reinforcement, and bi-directional interaction of one-way shear. This edition also includes the latest information on two-way shear strength, ordinary walls, seismic loads, reinforcement detailing and analysis, and materials requirements. This book covers the historical background of structural concrete; advantages and disadvantages; codes and practice; and design philosophy and concepts. It then launches into a discussion of the properties of reinforced concrete, and continues with chapters on flexural analysis and design; deflection and control of cracking; development length of reinforcing bars; designing with the strut-and-tie method; one-way slabs; axially loaded columns; and more.

- Updated to align with the new ACI 318-19 code with new code provisions to include: transverse reinforcement and shear in wide beams, hanger reinforcement, bi-directional interaction of one-way shear, and reference to ACI certifications
- Includes dozens of worked examples that explain the analysis and design of structural members
- Offers updated information on two-way shear strength, seismic loads, materials requirements, and more
- Improves the design ability of students by explaining code requirements and restrictions
- Provides examples in SI units in every chapter as well as conversion factors from customary units to SI
- Offers instructors access to a solutions manual via the book's companion website

*Structural Concrete: Theory and Design, Seventh Edition* is an excellent text for undergraduate and graduate students in civil and structural engineering programs. It will also benefit concrete designers, structural engineers, and civil engineers focused on structures.
