A microcomputer program that allows users to scan the ACI Building Code, check designs, and study topics on reinforced concrete has been developed for both teaching and engineering practice. The program consists of a checklist based upon the Building Code Re-quirements for Reinforced Concrete (ACI 318-77). The program allows the user to retrieve information pertaining to a specific design or the most important general aspects of reinforced concrete design. It enables users to check a solution as well as learn and review material.
