Design of Concrete Structures – Arthur H. Nilson – 14th Edition


The 14th edition of the classic text, , is completely revised using the newly released 2008 ACI (American Institute) Code. This new edition has the same dual objectives as the previous editions; first to establish a firm understanding of the behavior of concrete, then to develop proficiency in the methods used in current design .

Design of Concrete covers the behavior and design aspects of concrete and provides updated examples and homework . New material on slender columns, seismic design, anchorage using headed deformed bars, and reinforcing slabs for shear using headed studs has been added. The notation has been thouroughly updated to match changes in the ACI Code.

The text also presents the basic of structural concrete and methods for the design of individual members for bending, shear, torsion, and axial force, and provides detail in the various types of structural systems , including an extensive presentation of slabs, footings, , and retaining walls.
