The opinion of the Insurance Committee of the American Concrete Institute is that the most effective work it can do is to collate authoritative data regarding the behavior of reinforced concrete buildings, particularly industrial buildings, under actual fire conditions. It does not feel that any work within its limits on insurance rates or in tabulating comparative rates will be of much value, as the subject of fire underwriting is exceedingly complicated and requires long experience and much time properly to interpret.
