This Code covers the proper design and construction of buildings of reinforced concrete. It is written in such form that it ma be incorporated verbatim or adopted by reference in a general building code, and earlier e ditions 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 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. Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate AWS standard.
