ACI forms committee to develop precast structural concrete code

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has formed a committee to develop and maintain structural concrete code requirements relating to the design of precast concrete.

Under the leadership of chair Andrea Schokker, head of civil engineering at The University of Minnesota Duluth, the committee will aim to establish building code requirements that address the precast and prestressed concrete design.

ACI says guidance documents for the design of connections and members can be found in the industry, but code officials often require code documents that delineate minimum requirements in mandatory language that have been developed using an open consensus process.  The ACI’s new precast structural concrete code requirements are expected to complement the requirements in ACI 318: Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.

ACI Committee 319, Precast Structural Concrete Code will host its inaugural meeting at the ACI Fall Convention on 21 October in Cincinnati, Ohio.
