Design of Concrete Structures – Arthur H. Nilson – 15th Edition


The fifteenth edition of the classic text, of , is completely revised using the newly released 2014 American Institute (ACI) Code.

This new edition has the same dual objectives as the previous editions: first to establish a firm understanding of the behavior of concrete, then to develop proficiency in the used in current design practice.
