A companion piece to ACI Specification No. 502, “Concrete Work on Ordinary Buildings,” and the two specifications cover the entire concrete work on ordi- nary buildings. The specification includes paragraphs on material, placing drawings, bar lists and bending details, placing details, etc. As an appendix to the report, a “Steel Setter’s Primer,” presents the fundamentals of steel reinforcing for the man who places the steel. The author asks the steel worker to picture where the member would be likely to break if no steel were provided and helps him to conjure up the picture. Reinforcing in footings, columns, beams, slabs, cantilever beams and slabs, and retaining walls is discussed simply.
