RE: ACI 318-99: Comments, Anyone?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
That fairly begs the next question:

Why did they feel they needed to refer to an "updated" ACI 318? Why was ACI
318-95 not up to snuff?

I'd like some answers as to the particulars of the "changes."

A few years ago, ASCE 7-93 came out with seismic provisions reflecting
NEHRP. Then, just two years later, ASCE 7-95 came out, with new wind
provisions which were not ready for prime time when the seismic was.

So, are there similar stories to relate concerning ACI 318-99?

Thanks.
