Re: Concrete Building Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I don't have this book but remember that a friend really liked it,
especially when preparing for the SE exam in Illinois.  Since I don't have
it, I am not completely sure I have found the correct title.  I do know
the edition that she had was a read hard cover book and was aimed at
designing concrete buildings for lateral loads.  I am pretty sure that the
book was "Design of Concrete Building for Earthquake and Wind Forces".
The edition that she had was done according the 1994 UBC, but there is a
newer edition that does it according to the 1997 UBC.  The book is
published by PCA.

Also, if you want a publication that gives good examples of the ACI 318
provisions, then take a loot at PCA's "Notes on ACI 318-xx Building Code
Requirements for Structural Concerte with Design Applications".  Note I
put the "xx" in there rather than a specific year since PCA does a new
edition of this book for each cycle of the ACI 318 code.  PCA does have
one available for the the 1999 and 2002 edition.
