Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams presents the concrete design and analysis methods most needed by civil and structural engineering students.The book’s 12 chapters provide a concise but thorough review of concrete theory, code application, design principles, and structural analysis. The 51 example problems demonstrate how to apply concepts, codes, and equations, and over 40 figures and tables provide essential support material. A complete nomenclature list defines the industry-standard variables and symbols used in each chapter.
This book includes code references to familiarize you with exam-adopted codes, such as ASCE7 and ACI 318. It also includes 35 multiple-choice problems and 2 scenario-based design problems to enhance your problem-solving skills. Each problem’s complete solution lets you check your solving approach. On exam day, you can use this book’s thorough index to quickly locate important codes and concepts.

The NCEES recently adopted the 2014 edition of the ACI 318 code for the 2016 Civil PE exam. This adoption occurred post-publication of Concrete Design for the Civil PE and Structural SE Exams. For your reference and convenience, we have included a PDF that cross references the 2011 ACI 318 and the 2014 ACI 2014. You may access the PDF by clicking here.
