About This Item

 

Full Description

The code portion of this documents covers the proper design and construction of buildings of structural concrete. The code has been written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner.

Among the subjects covered are: drawing and specifications; inspection; durability requirements; concrete quality; mixing & placing; formwork; embedded pipes; construction joints; reinforcement details; analysis & design; strength & serviceability; flexural & axial loads; shear & torsion; development & splices of reinforcement; slab systems; walls; footings; precast concrete; composite flexural members; prestressed concrete; shells & folded plate members; strength evaluation of existing structures; special provisions for seismic design; structural plain concrete; an alternate design method in Appendix A; unidentified design provisions in Appendix B; and alternative load and strength reduction factors in Appendix C.

The quality and testing of materials used in construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate ANSI/AWS standard.

Because the ACI Building Code is written as a legal document so that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code, it cannot present background details or suggestions for carrying out its requirements or itent. It is the function of this commentary to fill this need.

The commentary discusses some of the considerations of the committee in developing the code with emphasis given to the explanation of new or revised provisions that may be unfamiliar to code users.

The Notes volume is published by the Portland Cement Association as a companion to the ACI 318 Code. References to much of the research data referred to in preparing the code are cited for the user desiring to study individual questions in greater detail. Other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements of the code are also cited.
