Title: Suggested Specifications for Structural Concrete for Buildings
Author(s): ACI Committee 301
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1321-1374
Abstract:These specifications are a reference standard which the engineer or architect may make applicable to any building proiect by citing them in the project specifications. Individual chapters or sections cannot be copied into proiect specifications since their meanings will be changed by taking them out of context. The specifications must be supplemented by designating or specifying individual proiect requirements. Four lists are provided listing places in these specifications and items that will require, or may require, specific treatment by the specification writer. The list of items requiring designation for specification are classed as: mandatory; additional mandatory, items designated or specified if the subject matter applies to the project; requirements at variance with these provisions; and requirements which are purely optional.
