The American Concrete Institute has released the 2018 ACI Collection of Concrete Codes, Specifications, and Practices.

Formerly known as the Manual of Concrete Practice, the ACI Collection is the most comprehensive and largest single source of information on concrete design, construction, and materials.

The collection includes nearly 50 codes and specifications and more than 200 practices, including guides and reports.

The ACI Collection features ACI 318 “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete,” ACI 301 “Specifications for Structural Concrete,” and ACI 562 “Code Requirements for Assessment, Repair, and Rehabilitation of Existing Concrete Structures and Commentary.”

Additional categories in the ACI Collection include concrete materials, properties, design, construction, reinforcement, specialized application, repair, structural analysis, and innovation, plus popular topics such as slabs, formwork, and masonry.

The ACI Collection is available as a convenient online subscription, a USB drive, and an eight-volume set of books.

Specifically developed for individual users, the online subscription of the ACI Collection includes access to every new ACI document as soon as it is published, plus metric and historical versions of ACI’s codes and specifications.

Last year, the organisation partnered with Saudi Arabia-based Gulf Cooperation Council Standardisation Organisation to develop a Gulf Building Code based on ACI’s Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318).

The ACI is an authority that provides resources for individuals and organisations that are involved in concrete design, construction and materials.
