ACI Releases New, Updated Detailing Manual


The American Concrete Institute has released a new and updated ACI Detailing Manual, which was last updated in 2004, and includes updates and revisions, as well as downloadable CAD files.

“Since 2004, ACI 318, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary has gone through several revisions and a substantive reorganization,” said Khaled Nahlawi, Distinguished Engineer, ACI. 

“These revisions resulted in new detailing requirements which made the creation of an updated ACI Detailing Manual timely. Combined with the new downloadable files—this manual will provide guidance to concrete design and detailing professionals for years to come.” 

According to ACI, users can expect to see:

  • example details and guidance to licensed design professionals on satisfying the provisions of ACI 318-19, Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete;
  • a copy of ACI 315R-18, Guide to Presenting Reinforcing Steel Design Details; and
  • commonly encountered reinforced concrete elements, methods for presenting necessary design information, articles published by concrete detailing experts, and supporting reference data.

ACI says that the Detailing Manual was developed specifically for engineers, architects, contractors, detailers and students. For more information, click here.
