ACI 318-14 Design Code Verification

ACI 318 Manual

Information presented on this page is intended to demonstrate the section design convergence for the ACI 318 14 design module from the SkyCiv Reinforced Concrete Design Software. All examples are taken from the following Reinforced Concrete Design Manuals:

Book 1. Abi O. Aghayere, George F. Limbrunner. Reinforced Concrete Design (Eighth Edition), 2014.

Book 2. Kenneth M. Leet, Dionisio Bernal. Reinforced Concrete Design (Third Edition), 1997

Book 3. James K. Wight, James G. MacGregor. Reinforced Concrete. Mechanics and Design (Fifth Edition), 2009.
