ACI releases documents on new structural concrete specifications

The American Concrete Institute recently published two important new documents for concrete industry professionals: “ACI 301-16 Specifications for Structural Concrete” and “ACI Field Reference Manual.” The ACI 301-16 is a reference specification that an architect or engineer can apply to any construction project involving structural concrete by citing it in the project specifications. A mandatory requirements checklist and an optional requirements checklist are provided to assist the architect or engineer in supplementing the provisions of this specification as required or needed by designating or specifying individual project requirements. The document complements the completely reorganized “ACI 318-14 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.” This enables the designer to use the 301 specifications to complement the design. The specifications are totally inclusive of virtually all forms of structural concrete that are used in the building construction industry. The reference manual is a compilation of ACI 301-16 specifications, along with other pertinent ACI documents. à ? (248) 848-3700
