ACI 318-19: Changes to the Concrete Design Standard  (7.5 PDH)

This seminar covers the major changes in the 2019 edition of ACI 318, “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-19) and Commentary. This edition is the first edition of ACI 318 in 5 years and the first update since the reorganization of the code in the 2014 edition.

All major changes in this edition of the code will be presented and discussed. This includes major changes centered around the topics of higher reinforcing steel yield strengths for many applications and the associated design provision changes; the addition of shotcrete provisions; deep foundation provisions; seismic requirements for deep foundations and other applications; vertical seismic motions; nonlinear analysis for seismic design; modification to development length equations; and updated shear design provisions and equations.

Register: October 24, 2019 (Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, OH) 

Price: $695 (non-member) / $595 (ACI member) / $150 student.

Includes either printed or PDF version of 318-19.
