Title: Standards of Performance of Concrete For Reinforced Concrete Buildings
Author(s): Nelson L. Doe
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 807-810
Abstract:Throughout the building industry the use of reinforced concrete is universal and constantly increasing. Its flexibility as a structural material is one of the main reasons for this widespread development. This very flexibility, however, which permits concrete to be used for such a great variety of structures burdens the builder with a certain amount of responsibility in the design and control of the concrete for use under different conditions. Buildings, as a class of construction, present many unusual situations which should be given consideration when the specifications for the concrete are written. Each individual building may, or may not, present special problems. It is, therefore, impractical to make a specific statement giving the requirements of concrete for universal building use. Only the general characteristics can be given for the field as a whole; the varying importance of the different qualities or the concrete being determined by the requirements of each particular structure.
