These minimum standard requirements are to be used as supplements to the ACI Building Regulations for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-41). With respect to design for strength, i.e., for bending moment, bond and shear stresses, all types shall be designed in accord with standard reinforced design theory and ACI 318-41. With respect to cover, there is in some cases departure therefrom justified by the greater refinement in the finished product when made by factory methods with factory control. Precast ;Floor systems with l-beam type and hollow core type joists are covered. Appendix contains applicable sections of the ACI code (ACI 318-41).
