The American Concrete Institute ACI is a nonprofit technical and educational society organized in and is one of the world's leading authorities on concrete technology. Concrete can have different properties depending upon the mixture that is used in creating it, which contains cement, chemical admixtures, and ACI Standards Standards A-C shop.
Add to Cart. Heist Richard A. Robert Little Chairman Russell S. Pointer Clark B. Morgan, Jr. Dean E. Stephan, Jr. ACI is one of the most essential and valuable standards with respect to the design of Cement Standards and Concrete Standards Cement Standards and Concrete Standards ASTM's cement and concrete standards are instrumental in the evaluation and testing of concrete, cement, and aggregates.
The most important chapters refer to: the areas of application ; the requirements made on: materials, manufacture and end product in particular, manufacturing tolerances, minimum dimensions, concrete cover, surface quality and the resistance to mechanical actions, ie the load-bearing capacity.
It contains all of the widely used ACI concrete and masonry code requirements, specifications, guides and reports. The technical committees responsible for ACI committee reports and standards strive to avoid ambiguities, omissions, and errors in these documents. In spite of these efforts, the users of ACI documents occasionally find information or requirements that may be subject to more than one interpretation or may be incomplete or incorrect.
Proper use of this document includes periodically checking for errata for the most up-to-date revisions.
ACI committee documents are intended for the use of individuals who are competent to evaluate the significance and limitations of its content and recommendations and who will accept responsibility for the application of the material it contains. Individuals who use this publication in any way assume all risk and accept total responsibility for the application and use of this information.
ACI and its members disclaim liability for damages of any kind, including any special, indirect, incidental, or consequential damages, including without limitation, lost revenues or lost profits, which may result from the use of this publication. It is the responsibility of the user of this document to establish health and safety practices appropriate to the specific circumstances involved with its use. ACI does not make any representations with regard to health and safety issues and the use of this document.
The user must determine the applicability of all regulatory limitations before applying the document and must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including but not limited to, United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration OSHA health and safety standards. Participation by governmental representatives in the work of the American Concrete Institute and in the development of Institute standards does not constitute governmental endorsement of ACI or the standards that it develops.
This Code addresses structural systems, members, and connections, including cast-in-place, precast, plain, nonprestressed, prestressed, and composite construction. Among the subjects covered are: design and construction for strength, serviceability, and durability; load combinations, load factors, and strength reduction factors; structural analysis methods; deflection limits; mechanical and adhesive anchoring to concrete; development and splicing of reinforcement; construction document information; field inspection and testing; and methods to evaluate the strength of existing structures.
The Code user will find that ACI has been substantially reorganized and reformatted from previous editions.
The principal objectives of this reorganization are to present all design and detailing requirements for structural systems or for individual members in chapters devoted to those individual subjects, and to arrange the chapters in a manner that generally follows the process and chronology of design and construction. Information and procedures that are common to the design of members are located in utility chapters. The quality and testing of materials used in construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications.
Uses of the Code include adoption by reference in a general building code, and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner. The Code is written in a format that allows such reference without change to its language. Therefore, background details or suggestions for carrying out the requirements or intent of the Code provisions cannot be included within the Code itself. The Commentary is provided for this purpose.
Some of the considerations of the committee in developing the Code are discussed within the Commentary, with emphasis given to the explanation of new or revised provisions. Much of the research data referenced in preparing the Code is 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. Transition keys showing how the code was reorganized are provided on the ACI website on the Resource Page under Topics in Concrete. This commentary R is intended for the use of individuals who are competent to evaluate the significance and limitations of its content and recommendations and who will accept responsibility for the application of the information it contains. ACI disclaims any and all responsibility for the stated principles.
The Institute shall not be liable for any loss or damage arising there from. Reference to this document shall not be made in contract documents. The materials, processes, quality control measures, and inspections described in this document should be tested, monitored, or performed as applicable only by individuals holding the appropriate ACI Certification or equivalent. These are two separate but coordinated documents, with Code text placed in the left column and the corresponding Commentary text aligned in the right column.
Each document carries a separate enforceable and distinct copyright. Emphasis is given to the explanation of new or revised provisions that may be unfamiliar to Code users.
In addition, comments are included for some items contained in previous editions of the Code to make the present commentary independent of the previous editions. Comments on specific provisions are made under the corresponding chapter and section numbers of the Code. However, references to some of the research data are provided for those who wish to study the background material in depth.
The Code is intended to cover all buildings of the usual types, both large and small. Requirements more stringent than the Code provisions may be desirable for unusual construction.
The Code and Commentary cannot replace sound engineering knowledge, experience, and judgment. A building code states only the minimum requirements necessary to provide for public health and safety. The Code is based on this principle. For any structure, the owner or the licensed design professional may require the quality of materials and construction to be higher than the minimum requirements necessary to protect the public as stated in the Code.
However, lower standards are not permitted. The Commentary directs attention to other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements and intent of the Code. However, those documents and the Commentary are not a part of the Code.
The Code has no legal status unless it is adopted by the government bodies having the police power to regulate building design and construction. Where the Code has not been adopted, it may serve as a reference to good practice even though it has no legal status.
The Code provides a means of establishing minimum standards for acceptance of designs and construction by legally appointed building officials or their designated representatives. The Code and Commentary are not intended for use in settling disputes between the owner, engineer, architect, contractor, or their agents, subcontractors, material suppliers, or testing agencies. Therefore, the Code cannot define the contract responsibility of each of the parties in usual construction.
General references requiring compliance with the Code in the project specifications should be avoided since the contractor is rarely in a position to accept responsibility for design details or construction requirements that depend on a detailed knowledge of the design. Design-build construction contractors, however, typically combine the design and construction responsibility. Generally, the contract documents should contain all of the necessary requirements to ensure compliance with the Code.
In part, this can be accomplished by reference to specific Code sections in the project specifications. It is recommended to have testing and certification programs for the individual parties involved with the execution of work performed in accordance with this Code.
Design reference materials illustrating applications of the Code requirements may be found in the following documents. The design aids listed may be obtained from the sponsoring organization. This provides tables and charts for design of eccentrically loaded columns by the Strength Design Method of the Code. Provides design aids for use in the engineering design and analysis of reinforced concrete slab systems carrying loads by two-way action.
Design aids are also provided for the selection of slab thickness and for reinforcement required to control deformation and assure adequate shear and flexural strengths. For a discussion of code philosophy, see Siess, C. Provides recommended methods and standards for preparing engineering drawings, typical details, and drawings placing reinforcing steel in reinforced concrete structures.
Separate sections define responsibilities of both engineer and reinforcing bar detailer. This describes specific types of concrete deterioration. It contains a discussion of the mechanisms involved in deterioration and the recommended requirements for individual components of the concrete, quality considerations for concrete mixtures, construction procedures, and influences of the exposure environment.
This summarizes practical information regarding design of parking structures for durability. It also includes information about design issues related to parking structure construction and maintenance. This provides tabulated designs for structural elements and slab systems.
Design examples are provided to show the basis and use of the load tables. Tabulated designs are given for beams; square, round, and rectangular columns; one-way slabs; and one-way joist construction.
The design tables for two-way slab systems include flat plates, flat slabs, and waffle slabs. The chapters on foundations provide design tables for square footings, pile caps, drilled piers caissons , and cantilevered retaining walls.
