Code covers the proper design and construction of buildings of reinforced concrete. It is 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. Among the subjects covered are: permits and drawings; inspection; specifications; materials; concrete quality; mixing and placing; formwork; embedded pipes and construction joints; reinforcement details; analysis and design; strength and serviceability; flexure and axial loads; shear and torsion; development of reinforcement; slab systems; walls; footings; precast concrete; prestressed concrete; shells and folded plate members; strength evaluation of existing structures; and special provisions for seismic design. An alternate design method is given in Appendix A. The quality and testing of materials used in the construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Welding of reinforcement is covered by the appropriate AWS standard.
