This book is primarily intended for the use of architects, builders, and foremen who have concrete building work on hand for which the reinforced concrete details have not been prepared or cannot be quickly obtained. It is also hoped that it will be of assistance to engineers who find themselves responsible for occasional structural work but whose knowledge of concrete construction is limited. With the aid of the designs given it is possible to erect a small building, tank, retaining wall, etc., and the details and operations are described in as simple a manner as is possible with a somewhat complicated subject.
