Among the subjects covered are: permits and drawings; inspection; specifications; materials; concrete quality; mixing and placing; formwork, embedded pipes, and construction points; reinforcement details; analysis and design; strength and serviceability ; flexural and axial loads; shear and torsion; development concrete; prestressed concrete; shells of reinforcement; slab systems; walls; footings; precast and folded plate members; strength evaluation of existing structures; and special provisions for siesmic design. The quality and testing of materials used in the construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications.
