Title: 318-71: Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete

Author(s): ACI Committee 318

Publication: Technical Documents



Appears on pages(s): 78



Date: 2/9/1971

Note: A newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 318-77. This code covers the proper design and construction of buildings of reinforced concrete. It is written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code, and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner. Among the subjects covered are: permits and drawings; inspection; specifications; materials; concrete quality; mixing and placing; formwork, embedded pipes, and con- struction joints; reinforcement details; analysis and design; strength and service- ability; flexural and axial loads; shear and torsion; development of reinforcement; slab systems; walls; footings; precast concrete; prestressed concrete; shells and folded plate members; strength evaluation of existing structures; special provisions for seismic design in Appendix A, and an alternate design method in Appendix 6. The quality and testing of materials used in the construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate AWS standard.
