This manual is published in two volumes. Volume 1 includes design and analysis for columns, deflection, flexure, footings, seismic, shear, and two new chapters on deflection and strut-and-tie in accordance with ACI 318-11. Volume 2 includes design and analysis for anchorage to concrete in accordance with ACI 318-11.
Information in each volume is presented in three sections:
- Explanatory Material
- Design Examples
- Design Aids
The Introduction of each chapter includes explanatory material that provides the engineer with concise background of the subject. The Design Examples illustrate the use of the Design Aids, which are tables and graphs intended to eliminate routine and repetitious calculations.
