Three New Publications Available from American Concrete Institute

The American Concrete Institute announces the availability of three new publications:

347.2R-05 – Guide for Shoring/Reshoring of Concrete Multistory Buildings – This guide presents information and design criteria for shoring/reshoring operations during the construction of reinforced and post-tensioned multistory buildings. It provides methods for developing safe construction schedules and provides design examples. Specific topics include shoring/reshoring construction needs, construction loads on formwork, and strength adequacy of concrete slabs and formwork. It is written for the use of formwork engineer/contractors and engineer/architects. $30.50 (ACI members $19.00)

209.1R-05 – Report on Factors Affecting Shrinkage and Creep of Hardened Concrete – This report describes the effects of numerous variables on shrinkage and creep of hardened concrete, including mixture proportions, environment, design, and construction, and is intended for designers who wish to gain further information about factors changing shrinkage and creep. Numerous charts and graphs are included for greater understanding. $29.50 (ACI members $18.00)

309R-05 – Guide for Consolidation of Concrete – This guide includes information on the mechanism of consolidation and gives recommendations on equipment, characteristics, and procedures for various classes of construction. Recommendations on mixture proportioning and vibration equipment are also presented; as well as procedures for floor slabs, pavements, precast products, structural low-density concrete, high-density concrete, and self-consolidating concrete. Additionally, the guide includes information on quality control and quality assurance. $57.50 (ACI members $35.00)
