This paper is intended to serve as a supplement to the ACI Building Code (ACI 313-56) which permits the use of the ultimate strength method for the design of reinforced concrete members. It presents the method in its simplest form with working equations and charts to aid in their application. It aims to give the designing engineer all the information that he needs for the use of the ult,imate strength method in accordance with the recommendations of the re-port of the ACI-ASCE joint committee on ultimate strength design. Regarding those problems not covered by the Code such as consideration of shear, bond, and deflections, recommendations are made based on the writers’ practice.
