As a part of ACI’s recognition of the U.S. Bicentennial in 1976, a special international symposium was held for the express purpose of cross-pollinating U.S. and European ideas of concrete design, with particular reference to the ACI Building Code. The 20 papers presented in this volume were developed from the symposium and follow its format, covering limit states design, shear and torsion, and special concepts and new applications for prestressed concrete.
