The American Concrete Institute has released a new publication for concrete industry professionals.

The Reinforced Concrete Design Manual [SP-17(14)] is a two-volume resource that provides guidance and assistance to professionals engaged in the design of reinforced concrete structures, ACI announced Monday (Nov. 2).


The two-volume publication is billed as useful tool for concrete professionals.

The manual was developed in accordance with ACI’s reorganized 318-14 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete, and serves as a companion tool for ACI 318-14, according to the ACI.

Examples and Information

Design examples of various reinforced concrete members based on a fictitious seven-story building are included, along with information to illustrate various ACI 318-14 requirements not related to the design of the members in the building.

The first three chapters in this design manual—structural systems, structural analysis, and durability—provide general information to clarify for the user the overall design and detailing requirements of reinforced concrete building structures, ACI notes.

Chapter four provides a short description of the fictitious seven story building and how it is used to demonstrate the use of the code requirements. Nine additional chapters make up the guide. 

ACI says design aids and a moment interaction diagram Excel spreadsheet are also available for free download.
