ACI Committee 315 is charged with the mission of maintaining and keeping current the ACI Detailing Manual. Since the adoption of the current Manual in 1965, the rapid growth in usage of high strength reinforcing bars and ultimate strength design makes necessary certain modifications of practice in column tie details and standard hooks. Pend-ing proposal of a complete revision to the Manual, the results of the committee studies in these areas are presented as interim recommendations for good practice. Discussion of these interim recommendations is particularly invited to provide a complete record of experiences in their use.
