The sixteenth edition of Design of Concrete Structures continues the dual objectives of establishing a firm understanding of the behavior of structural concrete and of developing proficiency in the methods of design practice. It is generally recognized that mere training in special design skills and codified procedures is inadequate for a successful career in professional practice. As new research becomes available and new design methods are introduced, these procedures are subject to frequent changes. To understand and keep abreast of these rapid developments and to engage safely in innovative design, the engineer needs a thorough grounding in the fundamental per- formance of concrete and steel as structural materials and in the behavior of reinforced concrete members and structures. At the same time, the main business of the structural engineer is to design structures safely, economically, and efficiently. Consequently, with this basic understanding as a firm foundation, familiarity with current design procedures is essential. This edition, like the preceding ones, addresses both needs. The text presents the basic mechanics of structural concrete and methods for the design of individual members subjected to bending, shear, torsion, and axial forces. It additionally addresses in detail applications of the various types of structural members and systems, including an extensive presentation of slabs, beams, columns, walls, footings, retaining walls, and the integration of building systems. The 2019 ACI Building Code, which governs design practice in most of the United States and serves as a model code in many other countries, underwent a number of significant changes, many due to increases in the specified strengths of reinforcing steels that can used for building construction.
For almost a century, Design of Concrete Structures has been the authoritative source for the behavior of reinforced concrete structures and design approaches in accordance with the ACI 318 Building Code. The 2019 ACI Building Code contains over 150 technical changes. These changes address higher strength reinforcement, revisions to flexural design, shear capacity, and development of reinforcement. The changes have profound and important impacts on the design of concrete structures. The 16th edition of Design of Concrete Structures by Darwin and Dolan presents current concrete behavior theory and updated code-based design rules. The text and illustrated examples are essential for faculty members, students, and practitioners to understand current concrete design.
