More new references for concrete professionals

The American Concrete Institute announces the availability of
four new publications.
SP-237 CD-ROM: Finite Element Analysis of Reinforced
Concrete Structures — This CD-ROM is a collection of 19 papers
presented at a 2003 workshop in Maui. Topics include the development
and validation of plain, reinforced, and fi ber-reinforced
concrete constitutive models, new approaches to simulating the response
of reinforced concrete continua, new element formations to
enable improved simulation of component response, the creation of
new experimental data sets, and new computational techniques.
SP-238: International Symposium on Confi ned Concrete
— This publication contains 28 papers that were presented at a
symposium held in China in 2004. Topics include performancebased
design and seismic analysis, confi ned concrete models, fi nite
element modeling, confi ned concrete in steel and concrete composites,
and FRP-confi ned concrete.
SP-240 CD-ROM: Performance-Based Design of Concrete
Building for Wind Loads — This CD-ROM contains six papers
that were presented at a technical session held in San Francisco in
fall 2004. Topics include an overview of performance-based design,
the nature of wind loads and wind tunnel testing, structural modeling
assumptions, components of lateral deformations in buildings,
and types of concrete structural systems to be considered
when fi guring for wind loads.
302.2R-06: Guide for Concrete Slabs that Receive Moisture-
Sensitive Flooring Materials — This guide contains materials,
design, and construction recommendations for concrete slabs-onground
and suspended slabs that are to receive moisture-sensitive
fl ooring materials. These fl ooring materials include sheet rubber,
epoxy coatings, vinyl composition tile, sheet vinyl, carpet, athletic
fl ooring, laminates and hardwood. Several chapters provide
an understanding of concrete moisture behavior and drying, and
show how recommended construction practices can contribute to
the successful performance of fl oor covering materials. This background
provides a basis for recommendations on how to improve
performance of fl oor-covering materials in contact with concrete
moisture and alkalinity.
