Seminar Description

This series of four one-hour webinars focuses on the three main areas of improvement in the ACI standard for concrete design and construction and indicates how compliance with the enhanced requirements would have been beneficial to the performance of the building. The 12-story condominium building, where 98 people were killed, was likely designed under the early or mid-1970s Florida Building Code and ACI 318-71 or ACI 318-77. Concrete durability, flat plate punching shear and structural integrity provisions of ACI 318 are critical areas of improvements that engineers, architects, and building officials must be familiar with for safe performance of concrete buildings.
