Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary
ACI 318 is a must-have standard for all professionals engaged in concrete design, construction, and inspection, containing the latest code requirements for structural concrete. The companion commentary, in a side-by-side column format to match the corresponding code requirements, provides background information for code provisions.
The ACI 318-11 edition features some key changes, including design requirements for adhesive anchors, reinforcement detailing requirements for seismic application, and much more.
Among the subjects covered are: contract documents; inspection; materials; durability requirements; concrete quality, mixing, and placing; formwork; embedded pipes; construction joints; reinforcement details; analysis and design; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; shear and torsion; development and splices of reinforcement; slab systems; walls; footings; precast concrete; composite flexural members; prestressed concrete; shells and folded plate members; strength evaluation of existing structures; provisions for seismic design; structural plain concrete; strut-and-tie modeling in Appendix A; alternative design provisions in Appendix B; alternative load and strength reduction factors in Appendix C; and anchoring to concrete in Appendix D.
Over 20 countries worldwide have adopted ACI 318 for use in their national codes.
