A PRACTICAL GUIDE TO REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURE ANALYSIS AND DESIGN
Reinforced Concrete Structures explains the underlying principles of reinforced concrete design and covers the analysis, design, and detailing requirements in the 2008 American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary and the 2009 International Code Council (ICC) International Building Code (IBC).
This authoritative resource discusses reinforced concrete members and provides techniques for sizing the cross section, calculating the required amount of reinforcement, and detailing the reinforcement. Design procedures and flowcharts guide you through code requirements, and worked-out examples demonstrate the proper application of the design provisions.

Im an engineer and bought this book on a recomendation. I would recommend to any student or seasoned engineer.
Excellent source of design information. It's exactly what I needed.
The Book is a basic text on reinforced concrete based on the American Concrete Institute's Code 318- 2008 Edition. It covers the basics of how concrete is made, the Strength Design Method using strain criteria and not the Whitney Stress Block method. I find it a little strong on Theory and not practice. Concrete is a job made material and strength can vary and rebar placement can vary within tolerence's. The book is easy to read and understand. I like it because it is up to date. My concrete design work is: underground rectangular vaults for a precast concrete company. My old book is with a 1975 edition. So I bought this one and am happy with it.
