Handbooks and Manuals

Handbooks and manuals are ACI documents that provide tools and guidance to the practitioner on applying design, construction, and inspection standards.

Handbooks typically contain charts, tables, and examples to facilitate design of concrete structures, formwork, and reinforcement detailing. Examples are provided to illustrate the steps in designing or detailing. Manuals often include compendiums of relevant ACI documents referenced by ACI standards, which engineers, contractors, and/or inspectors find valuable to have readily accessible.
