Abstract: Strength Design for Reinforced-Concrete Hydraulic Structures, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers engineering manual, provides guidance for designing reinforced concrete hydraulic structures by the strength-design method. It presents such topics as: 1) Details of reinforcement; 2) strength and serviceability requirements, including load factors and limits on flexural reinforcement; 3) design equations for members subjected to flexural and/or axial loads; and 4) design for shear, including provisions for curved members and special straight members. Besides providing detailed information on these design procedures, this engineering manual presents the designer with examples of their applications. As additional assistance to the designer, it also includes the derivations of the combined flexural and axial load equations.
