Associate Editors: Shawn Gross & Hani Nassif

Sponsored by: ACI Committees 435 & 348


This CD contains 21 papers that were presented at sessions sponsored jointly by Committee 435 & 348 at the ACI Fall 2011 Convention in Cincinnati, Ohio. The papers encompass a broad overview on the important issues related to serviceability and safety of structures from both a theoretical and design perspective. There are 15 papers on serviceability related to deflection and cracking, an additional 5 papers on topics related to various aspects of safety, and 1 paper on sustainability issues.
