Notes on ACI Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete

International Concrete Abstracts Portal. To aid in your transition to the edition of ACI avi, several resources are available in the online Portal.

Remember, the version of ACI that is incorporated by reference in IBC is the legally adopted code that will be used by most municipalities as their building code. However, a newer version of this document exists. These are exciting times that require a change in our organizational approach as well as our publishing schedule.

I can be reached through ACI headquarters or at my office: I can be reached through ACI headquarters or at my office:. This document was replaced by EB Each is used in different geographical areas of the U. Please contact member services for pricing.

The text and design examples have been revised to reflect, where possible, comments received from users of the “notes” who suggested improvements 138-99 wording, identified errors, and recommended items for inclusion or deletion.

A newer version of this document exists. International Concrete Abstracts Portal. ACI University is a global, online learning resource, providing on-demand access to a coee range of topics on concrete materials, design, and construction.

Other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements of the code are also cited. As I said previously, the Building Code is a reflection of the state-of-the-art in concrete construction, as determined by the work of all of you through the technical committees of the Institute.

All of the members of the committee understood that we would publish an interim code in and a major new one in These Awards will celebrate innovation and inspire excellence throughout the global concrete design and construction community.

Thirty-five chapters deal with specific design provisions of the Code and include sample problems and applications. Little did we know what the future held. Wallace and Kutay Orakcal. Where previously the ACI document was used by the three model code groups, it will now be used by only one in the IBC All of you have the right to comment on these proposed revisions until February 1, It is the function of this commentary to fill this need.

1. ACI 318 99

New provisions for evaluating cpde strength and detailing requirements at boundaries of reinforced concrete structural walls were incorporated into the version of the American Concrete Institute ACI Building Code, ACI cose In the future we will endeavor to produce a code that will always precede the IBC code cpde a year.

Back to Past-Presidents’ 38-99 List. Consequently, our next code edition will be and every three years after that. The moment cods of wall cross sections is based on a strain compatibility analysis, and two approaches are provided to determine whether specially detailed boundary elements are required. Among the subjects covered are: This new group made a decision to publish a single model building code by the 138-99to be known as the International Building Code or IBC Practicing structural engineers in the United States understand that ACI does not become a legal code until it is incorporated into a model building code, which is normally then adopted by a local jurisdiction as its building code.


Although the stress limit is the same as that in ACIsignificant changes were incorporated to address commonly identified shortcomings associated with the ACI provisions. The ACI Committee looks forward to the challenge and with your help will do our best for the Institute. The primary purpose for publishing this manual is to assist the enginer and architect in the proper application of the design standars. References to much of the research data referred to in preparing the code are cited for the user desiring to study individual questions in greater detail.

Second, the plus differences that had existed in UBC would be carried forward to IBC as plus modifications to For this, we still have another hearing to go through in March but, assuming the version of ACI is 31-899 to be the referenced document for the design of concrete structures, the number of modifications will be close to ten instead of the 60 plus which existed in UBC.

The emphasis is placed on “how to use” the code.

This will demand a change in our approach to revisions since we have been publishing cide new code every six years since The code has been written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner.
