Abstract:
Comments on the lack of system in notation as used in present concrete codes and related literature, and proposes guiding principles for a new, more orderly system of notation. The present form of notation for Chapters 16 and 26 of ACI 318-63 is compared with corresponding equivalent symbols in the proposed system.
