SCHAUMBURG, Ill. (October 5, 2017) —  The Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute (CRSI) has completed a comprehensive technical publication appropriately titled, Design and Detailing of Low-Rise Reinforced Concrete Buildings. Along with the release of the publication, CRSI has also developed a webinar series and a university capstone course utilizing the book’s content.

The publication provides step-by-step design procedures and design aids that make designing and detailing reinforced concrete members simpler and faster. The requirements of the 2014 edition of Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-14) are presented in a straightforward manner with emphasis placed on the proper application of the provisions in everyday practice. Although the primary focus is on low-rise buildings, much of the content can be used in the design of buildings of any size. The publication is available for purchase from the CRSI webstore as a printed softcover book or a downloadable PDF at

The webinar series, expounding on the book’s content, consists of six webinars covering all aspects of the publication. Webinars can be viewed during the selected live broadcast dates, or as on-demand videos shortly after each presentation airs. The series runs through August 2018. The webinars can be found in the CRSI e-learning portal, Rebar U, at
