Abstract:
Proposes the prompt modification of the Institute’s Building Regulations for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-41) in furtherance and support of a proposed National Emergency Code for the conservation of steel and other strategic materials, chiefly for defense construction where time is urgent and steel short; that working stresses be liberalized, live loads reduced, plain concrete encouraged and the most modern methods of design applied.
