By Committee 318
Summary: The "Building Code specifications for Structural Concrete" ("Code") covers the fabrics, layout, and development of structural concrete utilized in structures and the place acceptable in nonbuilding constructions. The Code additionally covers the energy overview of present concrete structures.
Among the themes lined are: drawings and standards; inspection; fabrics; sturdiness standards; concrete caliber, blending, and putting; formwork; embedded pipes; development joints; reinforcement info; research and layout; power and serviceability; flexural and axial lots; shear and torsion; improvement and splices of reinforcement; slab platforms; partitions; footings; precast concrete; composite flexural contributors; prestressed concrete; shells and folded plate contributors; power overview of latest constructions; provisions for seismic layout; structural undeniable concrete; strut-and-tie modeling in Appendix A; substitute layout provisions in Appendix B; substitute load and energy relief elements in Appendix C; and anchoring to concrete in Appendix D.
The caliber and trying out of fabrics utilized in development are coated via connection with the proper ASTM typical standards. Welding of reinforcement is roofed via connection with the best AWS standard.
Uses of the Code contain adoption through reference commonly development codes, and previous variants were conventional during this demeanour. The Code is written in a layout that enables such reference with no swap to its language. as a result, historical past info or feedback for conducting the necessities or rationale of the Code element can't be incorporated. The remark is supplied for this goal. many of the concerns of the committee in constructing the Code component are mentioned in the remark, with emphasis given to the reason of recent or revised provisions.

Spacing of welded intersections shall not exceed 16 in. 2. Deformed wire larger than D-31 is permitted when used in welded wire reinforcement conforming to ASTM A497, but shall be treated as plain wire for development and splice design. 7 — Welded deformed wire reinforcement should be made of wire conforming to ASTM A497, which specifies a minimum yield strength of 70,000 psi. 35 percent. 8 — Galvanized reinforcing bars shall conform to ASTM A767. Epoxy-coated reinforcing bars shall comply with ASTM A775 or with ASTM A934.
1. 8 — Galvanized reinforcing bars (ASTM A767) and epoxy-coated reinforcing bars (ASTM A775) were added to the 1983 Code, and epoxy-coated prefabricated reinforcing bars (ASTM A934) were added to the 1995 Code recognizing their usage, especially for conditions where corrosion resistance of reinforcement is of particular concern. They have typically been used in parking decks, bridge structures, and other highly corrosive environments. 9 — Epoxy-coated wires and welded wire reinforcement shall conform to ASTM A884.
For proper application of the Code provisions, the replacement limits should be stated, with interpolation when partial sand replacement is used. STRUCTURAL CONCRETE BUILDING CODE/COMMENTARY 318-31 CODE COMMENTARY Concrete, normalweight — Concrete containing only aggregate that conforms to ASTM C33. Concrete, normalweight — Normalweight concrete typically has a density (unit weight) between 135 and 160 lb/ft3, and is normally taken as 145 to 150 lb/ft3. Concrete, sand-lightweight — Lightweight concrete containing only normalweight fine aggregate that conforms to ASTM C33 and only lightweight aggregate that conforms to ASTM C330.
