The American Concrete Institute announced the availability of several new publications.
364.1R-07: Guide for Evaluation of Concrete Structures Before Rehabilitation — This guide presents general procedures for evaluation of concrete structures before rehabilitation. Among the subjects covered are preliminary investigation, detailed investigation, documentation, field observation and condition survey, sampling and material testing, evaluation and final report.
237R-07: Self-Consolidating Concrete — This document is expected to inform concrete producers, users, and specifiers of known practices and processes with regard to selfconsolidating concrete. ASTM has established Subcommittee C09.47, Self-Consolidating Concrete, to develop standard test methods.
216.1-07: Code Requirements for Determining Fire Resistance of Concrete and Masonry Construction Assemblies — This standard contains design and analytical procedures for determining the fire resistance of concrete and masonry members and building assemblies.
355.2-07: Qualification of Post-Installed Mechanical Anchors in Concrete & Commentary — This standard prescribes testing programs and evaluation requirements for post-installed mechanical anchors intended for use in concrete under the design provisions of ACI 318. Performance categories for anchors are established, as are the criteria for assigning anchors to each category.
349.1R-07: Reinforced Concrete Design for Thermal Effects on Nuclear Power Plant Structures — This report presents a design-oriented approach for considering thermal effect on reinforced concrete structures. Although the approach is intended to conform to the general provisions of Appendix E of ACI 349, it is not restricted to nuclear power plant structures. The general behavior of structures under thermal effects is discussed, as are significant issues to consider in reinforcement design.
