This course covers the Building Code requirements for concrete materials (ACI 318) and the specifications for concrete as addressed in ACI 301, Specification for Structural Concrete. The presentation covers strength and durability requirements for concrete as addressed in these industry standards. The second session is an overview of the Specification for Ready Mixed Concrete, ASTM C94 and discusses the aspects of ordering concrete, production, delivery and testing. It covers the responsibilities of the purchaser and the manufacturer of ready mixed concrete. The third session covers tips for improving project specifications including how to reference national consensus standards and present performance criteria for concrete.
