Farmington Hills, Mich. — The American Concrete Institute (ACI) released the 2018 ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications, and Practices. Formerly known as the Manual of Concrete Practice, the ACI Collection is the most comprehensive and largest single source of information on concrete design, construction, and materials, with nearly 50 codes and specifications and more than 200 practices – including all guides and reports.
The ACI Collection features ACI 318 “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete,” ACI 301 “Specifications for Structural Concrete,” and ACI 562 “Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary.” Additional categories in the ACI Collection include concrete materials, properties, design, construction, reinforcement, specialized application, repair, structural analysis, and innovation, plus popular topics such as slabs, formwork, and masonry.
The ACI Collection is available as a convenient online subscription, a USB drive, and an eight-volume set of books. Specifically developed for individual users, the online subscription of the ACI Collection includes access to every new ACI document as soon as it is published, plus metric and historical versions of ACI’s codes and specifications.
Recent feedback indicated that current and prospective users overwhelmingly indicated the name “ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications, and Practices” better represented the contents than the previous name “ACI Manual of Concrete Practice.”
Individual volumes of the ACI Collection are also available, plus special online access for multiple users, entire offices, and large multi-national companies.
