The clear and accessible choice for reinforced concrete design
When it comes to reinforced concrete design, one text stands out as the clear and accessible choice: Jack McCormac and James Nelson’s Design of Reinforced Concrete. These two highly respected authors introduce the fundamental principles of reinforced concrete design in a manner that is easy to understand, and illustrate those principles with numerous examples.
Building on a highly successful tradition, this revised and thoroughly updated Sixth Edition now features a new chapter on system design and reflects the most recent Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete from the American Concrete Institute.
Access powerful software for analysis and design!
In addition, this text is accompanied by two powerful software packages––Sable32 and a student version of SAP2000. These and any additional student and instructor resources are available for download from the book′s website at www.wiley.com/college/mccormac.

- Sable32: This software, which was developed by the authors, will help you perform structural analysis and design reinforced concrete members. The program presents you with member forces computed from analysis, and then asks you to select the appropriate design section for the member.
- SAP2000: A student version of the nationally used commercial program SAP2000 enables you to quickly enter the design data and obtain immediate answers. This program is introduced in Chapter 21, where the authors switch from the design of individual building components (as described in the first 20 chapters) to the design of entire building systems.
About the Author
Jack C. McCormac is a retired Clemson civil engineering professor named by the Engineering News Record as one of the top 125 engineers or architects in the world in the last 125 years for his contributions to education. McCormac has authored or co-authored seven engineering textbooks, with more than half a million copies now in print. His current books have been adopted at more than 500 universities throughout the world. McCormac holds a BS in civil engineering from the Citadel, an MS in civil engineering from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a Doctor of Letters from Clemson University. Named an Alumni Distinguished Professor, he taught at Clemson for approximately thirty-four years before retiring in 1989. He is included in the International Who's Who in Engineering. Russell H. Brown chaired the Civil Engineering Department at Clemson University for 17 years and recently retired. He received his BS degree from the University of Houston and his Ph.D. from Rice University. He is former chairman of ASTM Committee C15, former chair of the Flexure and Axial Loads Subcommittee of the Masonry Standards Joint Committee, and Founding Member and Honorary Member of the Masonry Society. He received the John Scalzi Award for his research in structural masonry and twice received ASTM's Alan Yorkdale Award for his research publications.
