We have independent concrete specifications. However, we have several versions. The version used depends on the requirements of the project and the judgement of the design engineer. All the versions reference ACI 301. Some versions reference specific sections. Other versions reference the entire document. If cold weather concreting is probable, ACI 306.1 is referenced. We sometimes references other ACI standards as guidelines. We only reference ACI 318 for items such as reinforcing steel fabrication requirements. If you want more detailed information you can contact me a saj5(--nospam--at)inel.gov or (208) 526-0544.

So I would like some input from other practicing engineers on how they use ACI documents to specify concrete: 1. Do you specify concrete by reference to ACI 301 or do you have your own concrete specification independent of ACI 301? 2. If you reference ACI 301 from your project specifications: a) Do you reference ACI 301 in full or only portions of it? b) Do you also reference other standard ACI specifications (such as 306.1 for Cold Weather Concreting, etc)? or Standard Practices (such as ACI 308 or Curing Concrete)? or ACI "Guides" (such as 305R for Hot Weather Concreting or 350R for Environmental Engineering Concrete Structures)? c) Do you reference the ACI 318 Building Code from your project specifications? 3. Have you encountered any problems with inconsistencies between ACI 301 and another ACI code or standard specification?
