Description

The code and commentary includes excerpts from ACI 318M-02that are pertinent to ACI 350M. The commentary discusses someof the considerations of Committee ACI 350 in developing “CodeRequirements for Environmental Engineering Concrete Struc-tures (ACI 350M-06),” hereinafter called the code. Emphasis isgiven to the explanation of provisions that may be unfamiliar tousers of the standard. Comments on specific provisions are madeunder the corresponding chapter and section numbers of the codeand commentary.

However, references to some of theresearch data are provided for those who wish to study thebackground material in depth.

As the name implies, “Code Requirements for Environ-mental Engineering Concrete Structures” may be used aspart of a legally adopted code and, as such, must differ inform and substance from documents that provide detailedspecifications, recommended practice, complete designprocedures, or design aids.

The code is intended to cover environmental engineering concrete structures, but is not intended to supersede ASTM standards for precast structures.
