The purpose of this Design Guide is to assist in the proper application of the design and detailing requirements. The many design aids and worked-out examples are provided to make designing and detailing reinforced concrete members simpler and faster. The goal is to acquire an understanding of the code requirements and to apply them properly and efficiently.

In addition to structural engineers, this Design Guide is a valuable resource for educators, students, individuals studying for licensing exams, and building officials.
