The American Concrete Institute. Founded in 1904 and headquartered in Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA, the American Concrete Institute is a leading authority and resource worldwide for the development, dissemination, and adoption of its consensus-based standards, technical resources, educational programs, and proven expertise for individuals and organizations involved in concrete design ...
For example, one technician in a testing laboratory was testing high-strength field-cured and standard-cured specimens for quality assurance found that the field-cured specimens of high-strength concrete were consistently breaking at 25-35% lower strengths than the standard-cured cylinders.
A.: ACI 318-83, "Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete," commonly referred to as the "ACI Building Code," is promulgated by the American Concrete Institute (ACI). The ACI Building Code is not written to be used as a contract document for construction.
The American Concrete Institute announces the ACI Self-Consolidating Concrete Testing Technician certification program is now available. This new program will certify individuals based on their technical knowledge and ability to correctly perform five ASTM test methods.
Inspection and Testing of Ready-Mixed Concrete, American Concrete Institute (ACI) 31 ACI 318R (1989): Use of Concrete in Buildings—Design, Specifications, and Related Topics, Part 3: Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete and Commentary, American Concrete Institute (ACI)
The American Concrete Institute (ACI) publishes more than 400 standards that apply to the manufacture, use and maintenance of concrete in a variety of applications. These standards also determine methods for testing, inspection and building code requirements.
Standard Curing During initial curing, the cylinders must be stored in a temperature range from 60 - 80 degrees F in an environment that prevents moisture loss for up to 48 hours. If the concrete design strength is 6,000 psi or greater, the initial curing temperature must range from 68 - 78 degrees F. Specimens should be shielded from direct ...
These model test methods are intended for consideration, modification, and adoption, either in whole or in part, by a U.S. national standards-writing agency such as ASTM International or AASHTO. The publication of these test methods by ACI Committee 440 is an effort to aid in this adoption.
4.1 The testing and inspection of concrete and concrete aggregates are important elements in obtaining quality construction. A testing agency providing these services shall be selected with care. 4.2 A testing agency shall be deemed qualified to perform and report the results of its tests if the ...
The American Way is a localized module that enables custom reports, statistical analysis and mix design methods adapted to ACI, ASTM & CSA standards. With The American Way you can print submittal package reports and perform statistical analysis as specified by the American Concrete Institute guidelines.
