CRSI Design Guides

CRSI Design Guides

CRSI Design Guides

I just noticed that CRSI now has design guides for individual subjects:

-Pile Caps
-Voided Slabs
-Cantilevered Retaining Walls
-Spread Footings
-Floor Vibration

Does anyone have any of these? Do they take the place of the CRSI Design Handbook? What year code are they based on? There isn't much info at the CRSI website.

RE: CRSI Design Guides

I've got the pile cap guide. It's excellent and based on ACI 318-14. Some time ago, a CRSI rep told me that the 10th ed CRSI manual would be the last combined publication before they split up the chapters. I was saddened to hear that as I prefer the combined format, not least for financial reasons. I have every CRSI ever published. It shall be the end of my collection. Granted, my wife will like that from a storage perspective.

I like to debate structural engineering theory -- a lot. If I challenge you on something, know that I'm doing so because I respect your opinion enough to either change it or adopt it.

RE: CRSI Design Guides

I too like the CRSI manual but I can see why it makes sense to do it this way. With the individual subjects they can update each manual as needed for code changes and more easily add additional manual subjects if they desire without having a massive tome. Plus, as a end user, if you're like me and only used it for a few sections then you only have to buy and update those sections at a cheaper price than the full manual.

RE: CRSI Design Guides

Thank you. That's just the information I was looking for. It would be nice if CRSI put that on their website.
