The ACI says the manual is developed specifically to meet the needs of engineers, architects, contractors, detailers and engineering students.
The updated manual includes example details and guidance to licensed design professionals on satisfying the provisions of ACI 318-19, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.
A copy of ACI 315R-18, Guide to Presenting Reinforcing Steel Design Details is included, along with methods for presenting necessary design information, articles published by concrete detailing experts and supporting reference data.
Khaled Nahlawi, distinguished engineer at ACI says: “Since 2004, ACI 318, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary has gone through several revisions and a substantive reorganisation. These revisions resulted in new detailing requirements which made the creation of an updated ACI Detailing Manual timely. Combined with the new downloadable files – this manual will provide guidance to concrete design and detailing professionals for years to come.”
