ACI 302.1R-15: Guide for Concrete Floor and Slab Construction

Product Code/ISBN: 3021-15

This guide emphasizes aspects of construction such as site preparation, concreting materials, concrete mixture proportions, concreting workmanship, joint construction, load transfer across joints, form stripping procedures, finishing methods, and curing. Flatness/levelness requirements and measurements are outlined.

A thorough preconstruction meeting is critical to facilitate communication among key participants, and to clearly establish expectations and procedures that will be employed during construction to achieve the floor qualities required by the project specifications. Adequate supervision and inspection are required for job operations, particularly those of finishing.
