"Through its adoption into virtually all U.S. model building codes, ACI 318, “Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary,” (herein after referred to as “the Code”) plays a leading role in many areas related to concrete, including education, design, production, construction, and repair. It’s arguably one of the most influential concrete codes in the world and a primary reason for ACI’s reputation as a leading source of technical information on the use of concrete.

…To ensure that the Code continues to serve as a primary resource for the construction industry, ACI Committee 318 has elected to step back and examine the document’s organization. This article presents the case for reorganizing the Code and discusses why it may be prudent to do so at this time. To provide a balanced perspective, counter arguments are also reviewed."
