Abstract:
A panel of experts debated the use of performance-based specifications at the 123 Forum session at The ACI Concrete Convention and Exposition – Spring 2016 in Milwaukee, WI. The general consensus was that performance-based specifications have great potential as alternatives to prescriptive specifications, rather than complete replacements.
