This ACI Standard establishes the minimum re- quirements for number and location of supports and spacers under the following conditions: one-way slab construction; ordinary beam and joist construction; heavy beam and girder construction; and flat slabs (two-way and four-way systems). The report makes no attempt to specify exact details and sizes for supporting devices but does give a specification covering the most common types.
