Abstract:
Proposes to change the existing Standard by adding descriptions of assembled concrete block, precast inverted T-beam joist with precast filler block, and inverted precast slab and T-joist types of floor units. New information is incorporated on moment bar spacing, steel requirements, distance between lateral supports, and provisions for tests. References for the ACI Building Code are brought up to date and the Appendix excerpts are taken from the 1951 Building Code. Minor editorial changes are made to clarify some of the other sections.
