The American Concrete Institute released a new and updated ACI Detailing Manual that includes example details and guidance to licensed design professionals on provisions of ACI 318-19, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete.

The document, previously updated in 2004, includes many new updates and revisions, and the addition of downloadable CAD files. Details include many commonly encountered reinforced concrete elements, methods for presenting necessary design information, articles published by concrete detailing experts, and supporting reference data.

“Since 2004, ACI 318, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary has gone through several revisions and a substantive reorganization,” says Khaled Nahlawi, Distinguished Engineer, American Concrete Institute. “These revisions resulted in new detailing requirements which made the creation of an updated ACI Detailing Manual timely. Combined with the new downloadable files, this manual will provide guidance to concrete design and detailing professionals for years to come.” 

The ACI Detailing Manual is developed specifically to meet the needs of engineers, architects, contractors, detailers, and engineering students. For more details or to purchase the ACI Detailing Manual, visit concrete.org.
