Abstract:
Defective concrete is largely the result of lack ofcooperation and coordination among designing engi-neers, construction engineers, specification writers, and field inspectors. Presents typical examples, such as crowded reinforcement, improper methods of placing, weak and ambiguous specifications, and incompetent inspection. Proposes as a cure for the condition a simple remedy - cooperation and coordination prior to the letting of contracts.
