ACI 318-11: Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete and Commentary (318-11)

The "Building Code standards for Structural Concrete" ("Code") covers the fabrics, layout, and development of structural concrete utilized in constructions and the place acceptable in nonbuilding constructions. The Code additionally covers the energy review of present concrete structures.

Among the themes coated are: agreement records; inspection; fabrics; toughness standards; concrete caliber, blending, and putting; formwork; embedded pipes; development joints; reinforcement info; research and layout; energy and serviceability; flexural and axial rather a lot; shear and torsion; improvement and splices of reinforcement; slab platforms; partitions; footings; precast concrete; composite flexural participants; prestressed concrete; shells and folded plate contributors; power overview of current constructions; provisions for seismic layout; structural simple concrete; strut-and- tie modeling in Appendix A; substitute layout provisions in Appendix B; substitute load and power aid components in Appendix C; and anchoring to concrete in Appendix D.

Sample text

If, on the one hand, you mean does high voltage always have high current and low voltage always have low current, then the answer is no. For example, your car's battery is 12VDC but it may be required to deliver several hundred amperes to start your car. The digital clockradio on your nightstand operates on 120VAC and probably con­ sumes less than one ampere. On the other hand, if you mean is there an arithmetic relationship between current and voltage, the answer is yes. The relationship be­ tween current, voltage, and resistance is called Ohm's law.

Tantalum capacitors are usually more expensive than electrolytic capacitors. 5 μΐ to 50 μ¥, and their working voltages rarely exceed 50 volts. VARIABLE CAPACITORS Most capacitors have fixed values, as do most resistors. Also, similar to resistors, some are available with variable values. The schematic symbol for a variable capacitor is shown in Figure 2 - 1 4 . DIODES A device that allows current to flow in one direction only is called a diode. The common schematic symbol for a diode is shown in Figure 2-15.

For example, a sche­ matic might show a 1,000-ohm resistor between two components. If you measure resistance and find it very high, it may indicate the resis­ tor is defective. If a flashlight is not working, a schematic will help you start your troubleshooting procedures.
