AD.2006-1004.2.2 ACI 2005

The ACI concrete design module has been updated to support the current 2005 version of the ACI code, ACI 318-05.

When performing the concrete design using the parameter CODE ACI 2005, the design will be performed according to the requirements of the American Concrete Institute document, ‘Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318-05)’. If it is required to perform the design to the older versions of the code, specifically, the 1999 or 2002 version of the code, then the commands:

  • CODE ACI 1999


  • CODE ACI 2002

The commands CODE ACI or CODE ACI 2005 will set the program ready to perform the design to ACI 2005 when it encounters the commands DESIGN BEAM…, DESIGN COLUMN… or DESIGN ELEMENT….

For more information on the refer to the updated Section 3 of the Technical Reference manual, American Concrete Design .
