Design of Concrete Structures – Arthur H. Nilson – 15th Edition


The fifteenth edition of the classic text, Design of Structures, is completely revised using the newly released 2014 American Concrete Institute (ACI) 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 practice.
