Abstract:
Building code requirements for concrete units present a field for simplification and standardization as fertile as any in the catalogue. There is a variety both of requirements and of limits enforced under these requirements, which defies complete description within the limit of a brief article, and which is entirely unjustifiable under the widest conceivable variation in conditions.
