Simplified Design of Reinforced Concrete Buildings (EB204)

By Kamara, M.E. and Novak, L.C.

This new, fourth edition presents practicing engineers with time saving analysis, design, and detailing methods of primary framing members of a reinforced concrete building. Revised and updated to ACI 318-11, it incorporates seismic and wind load provisions to comply with the International Building Code (2009 IBC). All equations, design aids, graphs, and code requirements have been updated to the current codes. Expanded illustrations of the theory and fundamentals and new time saving design aids were added to include a wider range of concrete strengths. Also contains a new chapter on sustainable design.

PCA Notes on ACI 318-11 Building Code (EB712)

By Kamara, M.E. and Novak, L.C

In PCA Notes on ACI 318-11 Building Code, the emphasis is placed on “how-to-use” the code incorporating discussions behind the code provisions and fully worked design solutions to real world problems. The manual has been found to be also an invaluable aid to educators, contractors, materials and product manufacturers, building code authorities, inspectors, and others involved in the design, construction, and regulation of concrete structures. The over 900-page publication adds to the understanding of the art and science of structural engineering through presentation of the latest research and design procedures. By incorporating discussions of the history and philosophy of concrete design, the document strives to inform the reader of both the ‘letter of the law’ and, more importantly, the ‘spirit’ behind the code provisions.
