Explains the basic concepts of reinforced concrete design reflecting the latest developments in the field


The Ninth Edition of this highly respected textbook has been thoroughly revised and updated in accordance with the latest edition of the 2019 American Concrete Institute Building Code and Commentary (ACI 318-19). Major changes include new design provisions for shear, development length, beam-column joints, and deflections, among others. Numerous examples and end-of-chapter problems are provided throughout the textbook. To aid instructors, many problem solutions are also available as Mathcad® worksheets, allowing alternate solutions by modifying a few parameters at the choice of the instructor.

New to this Edition

  • Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest ACI building codes
  • New examples using software and design tools used in practice
  • Additional online content, including figures and photos not included in text


  • Most affordable and streamlined text on the market
  • Covers the most practical aspects of reinforced concrete design for an introductory course
  • Widely respected classic text
  • Chapter on slenderness effects on columns exemplifies the analyses required using structural analysis software that is typically used in design firms
