The Next New Building Code – ACI 11/01/ Approximately three and one half years ago, I had the opportunity to address the Institute from this page. Title: ACI Provisions for Seismic Design of Structural Walls of the American Concrete Institute (ACI) Building Code, ACI Title: /R Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete & Because the ACI Building Code is written as a legal document so that it may be.

In recent history, there have been three recognized model building code agencies in the United States. The commentary discusses some of the considerations of the committee in developing the code with emphasis given to the explanation of new or revised provisions that may be unfamiliar to code users.
The emphasis is placed on “how to use” the code. The code has been written in such form that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code and earlier editions have been widely used in this manner.
The code portion of this documents covers the proper design and construction of buildings of structural concrete. How we got there is the basis of this memo.
This new group made a decision to publish a single model building code by the yearto be known as the International Building Code or IBC The International Concrete Abstracts Portal is an ACI led collaboration with leading technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts. International Concrete Abstracts Portal.
Among ai subjects covered are: The text and design examples have been revised to reflect, where possible, comments received from users of the “notes” who suggested improvements in wording, identified errors, and recommended items for inclusion or deletion.

This document was replaced by EB Appears on pages s: Other documents that provide suggestions for carrying out the requirements of the code are coxe cited. It is the function of this commentary to fill this need. Where previously the ACI document was used by the three model code groups, it will now be used by only one in the IBC Since it is the intention of ICC to publish a building code every three years starting in the yearACI will attempt to publish in, qci, and so on.
For the second approach, once the critical section along the wall height is identified, a simplified displacement-based design procedure clde used to assess whether special detailing is needed. The first approach can be applied to all wall sections and involves checking a 0. I can be reached through ACI headquarters or at my office:.
In the future we will endeavor to produce a code that will always precede the IBC code by a year. Back to Past-Presidents’ Memo List. However, a newer version of this document exists.
International Concrete Abstracts Portal
Because the ACI Building Code is written as a legal document so that it may be adopted by reference in a general building code, it cannot present background details or suggestions for carrying out its requirements or itent.
Appears on pages s: Please contact member services for pricing. All of the cai of the committee understood that we would publish an interim code in and a major new one in This will demand a change in our approach to revisions since we have been publishing a new code every six years since The quality and testing of materials used in construction are covered by reference to the appropriate ASTM standard specifications.
The ACI provisions apply to both slender and stout walls, and walls with openings.
Each is used in different geographical areas of the U. New provisions for evaluating flexural strength and detailing requirements at boundaries of reinforced concrete structural walls were incorporated into the version of the American Concrete Institute ACI Building Code, ACI The International Concrete Abstracts Portal is an ACI led collaboration with leading technical organizations from within the international concrete industry and offers the most comprehensive collection of published concrete abstracts.
ACI University is a global, online learning resource, providing on-demand access to a wide range of topics on concrete materials, design, dode construction. Many of these suggested changes codde the result of our desire to address the modifications or differences that existed between and UBC.
International Concrete Abstracts Portal. International Concrete Abstracts Portal. Practicing structural engineers in the United States understand that ACI does not become a legal code until it is incorporated into a model building code, which is normally then adopted by a local jurisdiction as its building code. Background and illustrative examples are presented to demonstrate important concepts and appropriate use.
The ACI Committee looks forward to the challenge and with your help will do our best for the Institute. To aid in your transition to the edition of ACIseveral resources are available in the online Portal.

We on Committee undertook the task of minimizing those differences between IBC and the new version of ACI that would be referenced. All of you have the right to comment on these proposed revisions until February 1, Second, the plus differences that had existed in UBC would be carried forward to IBC as plus modifications to These Awards will celebrate innovation and inspire excellence throughout the global concrete design and construction community.

For this, we still have another hearing to go through in March but, assuming the version of ACI is accepted acii be the referenced document for the design of concrete structures, the number of modifications will be close to ten instead of the 60 plus which existed in UBC.
