Title: What’s This Report For?
Author(s): Lawerence Taber
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 46-47
Keywords: engineering reports, quality assurance, communication, construction problems
Abstract:This article is an introduction to a series of articles based on a technical session sponsored by ACI Committee E702, Designing Concrete Structures. This series is intended to build on that session. While the target audience is primarily young engineers in professional practice, the series will also be of use to more experienced engineers as a basic review. Numerous types of reports cross the desk or the computer screen of the practicing engineer on a daily basis. Reports can help engineers design correctly, monitor the progress and quality of construction, resolve construction problems, and provide a concise written record of events. The benefits gained from a report are limited by its quality and timing, so it is important to know what to request and when to ask for it.
