Abstract:
This paper, presented when a new building by-law or code was still in preparation, deals princi-pally with the chapter on reinforced concrete, then complete. Established conventions are followed except in regard to two-way slabs, for which new formulas for moment coefficients were adopted, and the definition of "equal" in span length of continuous beams of constant depth for application of conventional bending moment formulas. As this code was compiled before design by moment distribution gained acceptance and app licability no particular value except historically.
