Abstract:The mission of most AC1 technical committees is to develop and report information and a large number of missions include develop and maintain standards for use in design, construction, maintenance or other practice-related application. In general, the reports technical committees develop become prime sources of information in their assigned area. The objective of this paper is to document the formation of the committee and the development of the first report of AC1 352 Joints and Connections in Monolithic Concrete Structures published in 1976. The reports of AC1 352 have had considerable impact on the design and construction of concrete structures. The activities of AC1 352 provide a case study in the role of a committee in providing a vital link between research and practice. It seemed appropriate to discuss the work of AC1 352 at the Uzumeri Syposium because Mike Uzumeri served as a member of the committee. His research on the behavior of beam-column joints was an important part of the data on which the first report of AC1 352 was based.
