Re: ACI 543R

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I have 2004 edition of MCP. The latest revision is 2000 for ACI543R.
Table 2.6 addresses the clear cover for reinforcement. Also the minimum cover is different when the exposure such as marine environment exists.

If anyone out there has a more current edition of ACI 543R than the 1974 edition, could you check to see if the min. cover requirements for precast prestressed concrete pile in normal exposure has changed from 2-in.?  I'm looking at 1809.2.3.5 of the 2003 IBC, and it states that min cover shall be 1.25-in. for piles 12-in. or smaller.  I've got some 10-in. piles that I've detailed to have 2-in. of cover and the contractor wants to change it to 1.5-in.
