Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary covers: drawings and specifications; inspection; materials; durability requirements; concrete quality, mixing, and placing; formwork; embedded pipes; construction joints; reinforcement details; analysis and design; strength and serviceability; flexural and axial loads; shear and torsion; development and splices of reinforcement; slab systems; walls; footings; precast concrete; composite flexural members; prestressed concrete; shells and folded plate members; strength evaluation of existing structures; provisions for seismic design; structural plain concrete; strut-and-tie modeling in Appendix A; alternative design provisions in Appendix B; alternative load and strength-reduction factors; and anchoring to concrete

The quality and testing of materials used in construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications. Welding of reinforcement is covered by reference to the appropriate AWS standard.

Uses of the Code include adoption by reference in general building codes, and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner. The Code is written in a difficult-to-understand language. Often, background details or suggestions for carrying out the requirements or intent of the Code are difficult to understand. The Commentary is provided for this purpose - to help you understand the true intent of the Code.

Much of the research data referenced in preparing the Code is cited for the user desiring to study individual questions in greater detail. Other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements of the Code are also cited.

The 2008 edition of The Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary gives all users a comprehensive coverage of the design, materials and construction of structural concrete used throughout buildings and where it is applicable in non-building structures. Information that is presented in the code will also cover the strength evaluation of existing concrete structures. 456 pp.
