The 2004 edition of this must-have resource provides answers to many detailing questions asked by design engineers, architects, contractors, detailers, and engineering students. It is divided into three sections including "Details and Detailing of Concrete Reinforcement (ACI 315-99)," "Manual of Engineering and Placing Drawings for Reinforced Concrete Structures (ACI 315R-04)," and supporting reference data. Section 1 defines responsibilities for architects, engineers, and detailers and establishes standards of practice for both structural and placing drawings. Section 2 illustrates methods for presenting necessary design information through 50 oversized, fold-out drawings of highway and non-highway structures. Structural drawings conform to "Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-02/318R-02)" and all drawings were prepared with the assistance of the Federal Highway Administration, California Department of Transportation, and Concrete Reinforcing Steel Institute. Supporting reference data in Section 3 includes specific chapters on reinforcing bars, wires, bar supports, spirals, mathematical formulas and tables, and common symbols and abbreviations.
