PCA Notes on ACI 318-02 will help you apply the provisions of ACI 318-02 to the design and construction of concrete structures. Engineers and architects are the target audience, but PCA Notes is also a valuable aid to educators, contractors, materials and product manufacturers, building code authorities, and inspectors.

The 34 chapters in PCA Notes cover all 22 chapters of ACI 318-02 and also the appendices that deal with:

  • Strut-and-tie models
  • Alternative provisions for reinforced and prestressed concrete flexural and compression members
  • Alternative load and strength-reduction factors
  • And anchorage to concrete

Most chapters are introduced with a summary of updates related to the ACI 318-02 code revisions, and also contain numerical examples that help design professionals to better understand the application of the code requirements.
