An overview of recent changes to the ACI building code requirements for structural concrete

About this event

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has recently completed the technical update to the Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and published the latest ACI 318-19.

The ACI 318 specifies the requirements for the safe design and construction of concrete structures. The code has been referenced by international building codes worldwide, such as the International Building Code (IBC), and it is expected that the ACI 318-19 will be adopted in the 2021 IBC.

As a structural designer working with concrete, keeping up with code updates can be time-consuming. But don’t worry; we’ve got you covered!

Join Eva Wu, ClearCalcs’ Structural Design Consultant, on Wednesday, March 22nd, 2023, from 1 pm to 2 pm Eastern Time (ET) to learn more about some major changes to the ACI 318-19 that might affect your concrete design and how you can ensure to meet the building code requirements with ClearCalcs concrete calculators.
