Reinforced Concrete: Mechanics and Design uses the theory of reinforced concrete design to teach readers the basic scientific and artistic principles of civil engineering. The text takes a topic often introduced at the advanced level and makes it accessible to all audiences by building a foundation with core engineering concepts. The Seventh Edition is up-to-date with the latest Building Code for Structural Concrete, giving readers access to accurate information that can be applied outside of the classroom. Readers are able to apply complicated engineering concepts to real world scenarios with in-text examples and practice problems in each chapter. With explanatory features throughout, the Seventh Edition makes the reinforced concrete design a theory all engineers can learn from.
