Proposals for New One-Way Shear Equations for the 318 Building Code
The basic one-way shear provisions in the ACI 318 Building Code have remained unchanged since 1963. However, researchers have developed new methods that better account for the depth of the compression zone, the amount of longitudinal reinforcement, and the size effect on shear capacity. This article introduces a set of six articles that describe proposals being used to develop change proposals for the one-way shear equations for the ACI 318-19 Code. The impetus and activities leading to the change proposals are summarized.


Concrete Quality Technical Manager Certification
ACI is offering a new certification program—Concrete Quality Technical Manager (CQTM). The CQTM program is intended to identify and confirm individuals who possess the knowledge and experience necessary to supervise an effective concrete quality assurance/quality control program, manage those duties on behalf of a ready mixed concrete company, or represent the design professional in technical matters pertaining to the concrete used on a project.


Updating the ACI Shear Design Provisions
Shear provisions in ACI 318-14 Code have a few disadvantages that could be improved. For example, the provisions can provide overly conservative designs for members heavily loaded in shear and unconservative designs for deep one-way slabs without stirrups. The Code also contains eight separate equations to calculate the nominal shear strength provided by concrete. This article focuses on a method, based on first principles, to simplify shear provisions in the Code and address safety issues.


One-Way Shear Design Method Based on a Multi-Action Model
Shear strength of a reinforced or prestressed concrete beam results from the interaction of different resisting actions. The model described in the article is a simplification of the multi-action shear model developed by the authors. Presented equations were simplified for submission to ACI-ASCE Joint Committee 445, Shear and Torsion, considering distinct features of the ACI 318-14 Code with respect to European engineering practice.


A Unified Approach to Shear Design
Shear design expressions in ACI 318-14 have limitations related primarily to beams with low percentages of flexural reinforcement, beams with high-strength concrete, and member size. Also, different design approaches are required for nonprestressed and prestressed members. This article shows that it is possible to eliminate these limitations, unify design methods, and provide for improved safety of concrete structures.


Shear Strength of Prestressed and Nonprestressed Concrete Beams
ACI 318-14 requirements for determining the shear strength of concrete beams are separated into two distinctly different methods—one for prestressed concrete (PC) and one for nonprestressed reinforced concrete (RC). To simplify the shear strength calculations, a shear prediction equation incorporating a factor known as the “arch action factor” is proposed. This factor provides a means to unify flexural shear failure and web shear failure, and it has been shown to be applicable to both PC and RC.


Unified Shear Design Method of Concrete Beams Based on Compression Zone Failure Mechanism
Park, H.-G., and Choi, K.-K., Concrete International, V. 39, No. 9, September 2017, pp. The ACI 318-14 Code specifies the use of 14 equations for evaluating one-way shear strength. These detailed equations are inconvenient to use and need to be revised and combined into a unified method. This article presents a shear strength model based on the concrete compression zone failure mechanism. The shear strength of the compression zone is defined by a material failure criterion considering the effect of the compressive normal stress developed by flexural moment.


Proposal for ACI 318 Shear Design
Shear design should not be regarded as a sectional design process (designers check that the applied shear force does not exceed the shear capacity in vertical sections of a beam). Instead, the design process should look at load transfer in the whole member. This is best done by using strut-and-tie models. In this article, truss models, valid for members with shear reinforcement as well as without, are described. The models are shown to provide very good agreement with test results.


Embracing a Culture of Documentation

Concrete Q&A: Modification of Existing Structure with Change in Loads
The Q&A in the May 2017 CI featured an interesting question about existing structures. The answer is related to one of my current projects. I am the licensed design professional (LDP) responsible for the structural design of a modification of a hotel building at a ski resort. The owner wants to create an exterior rooftop terrace (bar) on the top floor of the building by removing a portion of the existing roof and façade. The original floor was designed for hotel occupancy. However, the new terrace area would be exposed to both snow loads and a higher occupancy floor load. The existing structure is reinforced concrete beam and slab construction from the early 1980s. What are the appropriate code provisions for the evaluation of the existing structure? How should I deal with the snow load (including drifting snow) and increased live load on the new terrace area (again, the structure was designed for residential floor loads)?

Precast Concrete Pavement Innovations
Precast concrete pavements (PCPs) have been shown to be promising alternatives for repair and rehabilitation of the aging highway infrastructure in the United States. The article presents details on technical considerations related to design, fabrication, and installation of PCPs, especially concrete requirements, joint spacing, support conditions, load transfer at joints, panel reinforcement and prestressing, and panel production and installation rates.


Banding Together to Reach Out
To create a perimeter band of free-flowing workspaces with maximal views of the surrounding landscape at the Novartis Oncology Research Building in East Hanover, NJ, the designers significantly set back the columns from the façade, resulting in long-span cantilevers and large, column-free expanses. The challenges with the quantity and density of a bonded post-tensioning system necessary to meet performance requirements could only be met through open, creative, and precise collaborative efforts between the owner, builders, manufacturers, installers, and designers.


Integrating Precast Cladding and Structure
In regions with high seismic risk, a precast hybrid moment frame (PHMF) is an optimum system for combining cladding and structure. The PHMF comprises high-quality precast column and beam elements, produced under factory-controlled conditions, that are connected using traditional construction methods and materials. The system is self-righting—the elastic, unbonded post-tensioning is designed to overcome yielding in the frame and pull the building back to a righted position.


Analysis and Design of Double-T Flanges
Pretensioned concrete double-T members are widely used as floors in parking garages. Uniformly distributed live load usually governs pretensioned design of the member in the main span direction, and the concentrated load usually governs the design of the overhanging outer flanges of the slab portion of the member. The article compares flange moments determined using elastic plate theory, various assumptions following the approaches given in the PCI Design Handbooks, yield-line theory, and consideration of the loadings suggested by Malik.


Post-Tensioning Institute 2017 Project Awards
The Post-Tensioning Institute (PTI) announced its 2017 Project Awards during the 2017 PTI Convention Awards Dinner in Atlanta, GA, in May.

Dangers of Silica Dust
Inhalation of "respirable crystalline silica" (particles size less than 5 micron [0.2 mil]) can result in silicosis and lung cancer. These small dust particles can be created by chipping, drilling, grinding, diamond polishing, and sawing materials containing crystalline silica, such as concrete and stone. The new OSHA regulations regarding silica exposure for construction that went into effect on September 23, 2017, and their implementation by tool manufacturers, are discussed.


Concrete Q&A: Acceptance Testing Requirements in ACI Standards

Position Statements from the Concrete Polishing Council of ASCC
Concrete Polishing Association of America (CPAA), created by a small group of contractors in 2010, is now the Concrete Polishing Council (CPC)—one of four specialty councils within American Society of Concrete Contractors (ASCC). The CPC has spent the last year developing educational products, refining its certification process, and publishing documents to help define the industry and the polishing contractor’s place in it. Three Position Statements that accompany this article comprise some of this work.


Uncoupling Modulus of Elasticity and Strength
To limit lateral deformations and ensure occupant comfort, designers of tall concrete buildings may specify a high modulus of elasticity (MOE) for the structural concrete. While MOE can be raised by increasing concrete compressive strength or using stiffer aggregates, such mixtures can be prone to brittle behavior and high autogenous shrinkage. There is an alternative way to obtain a high MOE, using carbon nanotubes, which, if well dispersed, can increase MOE of concrete without increasing the compressive strength.


Winners of the 2017 ACI Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards
A house comprised of architectural concrete, R·torso·C, received “The Excellence Award,” the highest honor in the ACI Excellence in Concrete Construction Awards program for 2017. The winning project was submitted by the Japan Concrete Institute.

Dispersion of Fibers in Ultra-High-Performance Concrete
Fiber balling is a challenge in scale-up production of ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) using conventional concrete mixing practices. Therefore, many producers resort to the use of specialty mixers, and this increases the cost of UHPC. This article presents an investigation into resolving fiber balling issues by adjusting the types, shapes, and sizes of fibers in the mixtures.


Titanium Finds a Home in Civil Engineering
The Oregon Department of Transportation has completed a bridge rehabilitation project using titanium bars. Girders on three of the four bridge spans of an overpass near Mosier, OR, were strengthened using a total of 70 titanium near surface mounted bars, a solution based on research conducted at Oregon State University. In addition to high tensile strength, ductility, and environmental durability, titanium offers high shear strength and resistance to mechanical damage, high maximum service temperature, and thermal expansion compatibility with concrete.
