Presented as a guide for the design of flexural structural members in buildings with unbonded tendons. Suggestions are made for needed revisions and additions to the ACI Building Code regarding this subject. Consideration is given to determining fire endurance, design for seismic forces and catastrophic loadings, and design for gravity and lateral loads. Recommendations are given concerning details and properties of tendons, protection against corrosion, and construction procedures. .
