The quality and testing of materials used in construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate AWS standard. Uses of the Code include adoption by reference in general building codes, and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner. The Code is written in a format that allows such reference without change to its language. Therefore, background details or suggestions for carrying out the requirements or intent of the Code portion cannot be included. The Commentary is provided for this purpose. Some of the considerations of the committee in developing the Code portion are discussed within the Commentary, with emphasis given to the explanation of new or revised provisions. Much of the research data referenced in preparing the Code is cited for the user desiring to study individual questions in greater detail. Other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements of the Code are also cited.

The most up to date structural concrete text, with the latestACI revisions Structural Concrete is the bestselling text on concretestructural design and analysis, providing the latest informationand clear explanation in an easy to understand style. Newly updatedto reflect the latest ACI 318-14 code, this sixth editionemphasizes a conceptual understanding of the subject, and buildsthe student's body of knowledge by presenting design methodsalongside relevant standards and code. Numerous examples andpractice problems help readers grasp the real-world application ofthe industry's best practices, with explanations and insight on theextensive ACI revision. Each chapter features examples using SIunits and US-SI conversion factors, and SI unit design tables areincluded for reference. Exceptional weather-resistance and stability make concrete apreferred construction material for most parts of the world. Forcivil and structural engineering applications, rebar and steelbeams are generally added during casting to provide additionalsupport. Pre-cast concrete is becoming increasingly common,allowing better quality control, the use of special admixtures, andthe production of innovative shapes that would be too complex toconstruct on site. This book provides complete guidance toward allaspects of reinforced concrete design, including the ACI revisionsthat address these new practices. Review the properties of reinforced concrete, with models forshrink and creep Understand shear, diagonal tension, axial loading, andtorsion Learn planning considerations for reinforced beams and strutand tie Design retaining walls, footings, slender columns, stairs, andmore The American Concrete Institute updates structural concrete codeapproximately every three years, and it's critical that studentslearn the most recent standards and best practices. StructuralConcrete provides the most up to date information, withintuitive explanation and detailed guidance.

Temporary structures are a vital but often overlooked component in the success of any construction project. With the assistance of modern technology, design and operation procedures in this area have undergone significant enhancements in recent years. Design Solutions and Innovations in Temporary Structures is a comprehensive source of academic research on the latest methods, practices, and analyses for effective and safe temporary structures. Including perspectives on numerous relevant topics, such as safety considerations, quality management, and structural analysis, this book is ideally designed for engineers, professionals, academics, researchers, and practitioners actively involved in the construction industry.
This book will provide comprehensive, practical knowledge for the design of reinforced concrete buildings. The approach will be unique as it will focus primarily on the design of various structures and structural elements as done in design offices with an emphasis on compliance with the relevant codes. It will give an overview of the integrated design of buildings and explain the design of various elements such as slabs, beams, columns, walls, and footings. It will be written in easy-to-use format and refer to all the latest relevant American codes of practice (IBC and ASCE) at every stage. The book will compel users to think critically to enhance their intuitive design capabilities.
