This text is intended primarily for third- or fourth-year Civil Engineering students at Canadian universities. It can also be used in graduate courses. Thoroughly Canadianized, this text provides accurate, up-to-date, and comprehensive coverage of Canadian engineering design and practice. The First Canadian Edition of Reinforced Concrete has been adapted from the U.
S. third edition text to reflect the Canadian concrete design code: A23.3-94 Design of Concrete Structures issued by the Canadian Standards Association. With the exception of the CPCA Concrete Design Handbook, this is the first Canadian textbook that is compatible with the current Canadian design code. (The CPCA Handbook, while used in many Canadian engineering programs, is not considered an adequate learning tool for students). In our book, the theory and practice of reinforced concrete design is explained in a systematic and clear fashionwith an abundance of step-by-step worked examples, illustrations, and diagrams. The focus is on preparing students to make the many judgement decisions required in reinforced concrete design. Lead author James MacGregor is a renowned authority on reinforced concrete design. He has been a distinguished teacher and a member of various code committees in Canada.
