Design of Reinforced Concrete – Jack C. McCormac, James K. Nelson – 7th Edition


With this bestselling book, readers will quickly gain a better understanding of the of . The author presents a thorough introduction to the field, covering such areas as theories, ACI Code requirements, and the of reinforced beams, slabs, columns, footings, retaining walls, bearing walls, prestressed sections, and framework. Numerous examples are also integrated throughout the chapters to help reinforce the principles that are discussed.

Reinforced Concrete Structures are widely being constructed throughout the world and because of availability of raw required to design a mix, they lead other materials like wood, stones etc. Mostly the code and guidelines used to design reinforced concrete structures is that of American Concrete Institute (ACI). In this post I will be sharing with you a book Titled “Design of Reinforced Concrete ACI 318-05 Code Edition”. The material of the book is written in such a manner as to interest in the subject of Reinforced Cement Concrete and to encourage them to continue its study in the years to come. This book is used in many institutions as a text book for the three-credit course.
