ACI SP-17(09) Design of Structural Reinforced Concrete Elements in Accordance with ACI 318-05

ACI SP-17(09) Design of Structural Reinforced Concrete Elements in Accordance with ACI 318-05

Ratings: (0)|Views: 7,056 |Likes:
This edition of the ACI Design Handbook was prepared in a new format based on the feedback received from handbook users over the years. The advances in programmable and nonprogrammable electronic calculators and personal computers have enabled the elimination of numerous design aids that were intended to carry out relatively simple design calculations. Instead, explanatory materials have been added to each chapter, while maintaining essential design aids and illustrative examples. This is the first edition
of the handbook after the introduction of explicit strain limits for tension- and compression-controlled sections in flexure, with variable strength reduction factors φ within the transition zone. This necessitated the development of a new set of design aids for members subjected to flexure. The increased use of higher
strength concretes and higher grade reinforcement has been recognized and the design aids were developed for concrete strengths of up to 10,000 psi for beams and 12,000 psi for columns; and steel grades of 60 and 75 ksi. The column interaction diagrams of Chapter 3 were developed for nominal quantities and in a nondimensional
form to facilitate the use of interaction diagrams with any system of units and any strength reduction factor. The use of nominal quantities also facilitates column investigations.
The chapters of the handbook were developed by individual authors, as indicated on the first page of each chapter. The authors were long-standing members of the former ACI Committee 340, Design Aids for Building Codes, which had the mandate to develop the previous editions of the handbook in accordance with the ACI 318 Building Code. Committee 340 was first established in 1958 and was discharged in 2003.
The first handbook was developed on the basis of the 1963 edition of the ACI Building Code. The committee subsequently engaged in revising the handbook in the years to come, and developed updated
editions of the handbook for the 1971, 1977, 1983 and 1995 ACI Codes. The current edition is based on ACI 318-05.
