The 28th edition of the Manual of Standard Practice contains information on recommended industry practices for estimating, detailing, fabricating, and placing reinforcing steel for reinforced concrete construction.
Manual of Standard Practice also includes suggested specifications for reinforcing steel. A chapter on bar supports provides information that is commonly referenced in most project specifications used today. Includes a list of very specific information on structural drawings required by the ACI 318 Building Code. Provides updated illustrations of the markings on Grade 60 and Grade 75 reinforcing bars.
Every design firm, construction company and inspection office that is involved with reinforced concrete can use the practical code-compliance information listed in this reference.
