Two must-have publications on reinforced concrete design are now available free-of-charge from the Portland Cement Association. While Simplified Design of Concrete Buildings and Notes on ACI Building Codes were revised and updated according to ACI 318-11 codes (which will soon be outdated), there's still plenty of meat here.
