This code covers the proper design and construction of buildings of reinforced concrete. It is written in such a form that it may be incorporated verbatim or adopted by reference in a general building code, and earlier editions of it have been widely used in this manner. Among the subjects covered are: quality of concrete, allowable stresses, mixing, placing, curing, and cold weather protection of concrete, forms, cleaning, bending, placing, splicing, and protection of reinforcement, constructron joints, general design considerations, flexural computations, shear and diagonal tension, bond and anchorage, flat slabs, columns and walls, and footings. The quality and testing of materials used in the construction are covered by references to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications.
