Editors: M.E. Kamara and B.G. Rabbat This ninth edition of PCA Notes has been updated to reflect code changes introduced in the latest version of Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-05) and Commentary (318R-05). The 34 chapters of PCA Notes incorporate the new notation and terminology. An alternative torsion design method is presented. Enhanced provisions for the design of anchors are described, and their application illustrated through several examples. Each chapter of PCA Notes starts with a description of the latest code changes. Emphasis is placed on "how-to-use" the code. Numerous design examples illustrate application of the code provisions. The primary purpose of the PCA Notes is to assist the engineer and architect in the proper application of the ACI 318-05 design standard. This publication is also a valuable aid for educators, undergraduate and graduate students, contractors, materials and product manufacturers, building code authorities, and inspectors.
