This book presents subject matter related to the analysis and design of reinforced concrete structural members. The focus is on the design of elements in reinforced concrete buildings where the primary reinforcement is steel reinforcing bars or steel wire reinforcement that is not prestressed. To safely and economically design reinforced concrete structures, a thorough understanding of the mechanics of reinforced concrete and the design provisions of current codes is essential. 

The purpose of this book is to present and explain the following in a simple and straightforward manner: (1) the underlying principles of reinforced concrete design; (2) the analysis, design, and detailing requirements in the 2008 edition of Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary by the American Concrete Institute (ACI) and the 2009 edition of the International Building Code by the International Code Council (ICC). Frequent reference is made to the sections of these documents (especially those in the ACI Building Code), and it is assumed that the reader will have access to them while using this book. Information on the properties of the materials that constitute reinforced concrete and a basic understanding of the mechanics of reinforced concrete must be acquired prior to exploring code provisions. Design and detailing provisions given in the code change frequently, and it is important to have an understanding of the core elements of reinforced concrete design in order to correctly apply these provisions in practice.

Presented in Chap. 1 are a definition of reinforced concrete and a basic synopsis of the mechanics of reinforced concrete. Typical reinforced concrete members and the fundamental roles they play in buildings are discussed. The main purpose of this discussion is twofold: (1) to introduce the types of concrete elements that are covered in the chapters that follow and (2) to illustrate how all of the members in a structure are assembled. A brief overview of construction documents and the main events that occur in the construction of a cast-in-place concrete building are also covered. Again, the purpose is to make the reader aware of the important topics that are encountered in any building project.
