ACI 318-19 Building Code Requirements available in print/ digital formats

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has announced that its ACI 318-19 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete is now available in print and digital formats.

ACI says the ACI 318-19 includes major technical changes in higher reinforcing steel yield strengths; the addition of shotcrete and deep foundation provisions as well as seismic requirements for deep foundations and other applications.

ACI 318-19 is also expected to address a range of other industry needs, including updates to provisions on post-tensioning, precast concrete, concrete durability and lightweight concrete.

Additionally, the building code requirements identify qualification training programmes for inspectors/installers and lists certification requirements. It is anticipated that the final code requirements of ACI 318-19 will be referenced in the 2021 International Building Code.

Jack P. Moehle, PhD, PE, chair, ACI Committee 318: Structural Concrete Building Code, says: “ACI 318 is one of the most essential and valuable standards with respect to the design of concrete structures. The United States and countries around the world base their national building codes on all or part of ACI 318.”

ACI 318-19 is currently available in English with inch-pound units and Spanish with SI units – additional versions and languages will be available soon. It is also immediately available to subscribers of the online  ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications, and Practices. ACI 318 Plus – a new product currently in development and targeted for launch in mid-2020 – will provide subscribers with digital/interactive access to ACI 318-19 along with access to related resources.

As part of the launch, ACI is hosting public and in-house seminars to introduce users to ACI 318-19 – visit concrete.org for locations and to learn more.
