a Limit not intended to safeguard against ponding. Ponding should be checked by suitable calculations of deflection, including added deflections due to ponded water, and consideration of long-term effects of all sustained loads, camber, construction tolerances, and reliability of provisions for drainage.

Long-term deflection should be determined in accordance with Equation 7.74, but may be reduced by the amount of deflection calculated to occur before attachment of nonstructural elements. This amount should be determined on the basis of accepted engineering date relating to time deflection characteristics of members similar to those being considered. c Limit may be exceeded if adequate measures are taken to prevent to supported or attached elements. d Limit should be greater than the tolerance provided for nonstructural elements. Limit may be exceeded if camber is provided so that total deflection minus camber does not exceed limit.

requirements (see Table 7.8). Lateral deflections of columns may be a function of occupancy comfort under high wind or seismic drift criteria (e.g., H/200).

7.19 Drawings, Specifications, and Construction

Although this chapter has focused mainly on the structural mechanics of design, design procedures and formulas, and rules that apply to reinforced concrete construction, the importance of drawings and specifications as part of the end products for communicating the structural design must not be overlooked. Essential information that should be included in the drawings and specifications are: specified compressive strength of concrete at stated ages (e.g., 28 days) or stage of construction; specified strength or grade of reinforced (e.g., Grade 60); governing design codes (e.g., IBC, AASHTO); live load and other essential loads; size and location of structural elements and locations; development lengths, hook lengths, and their locations; type and location of mechanical and welded splices; provisions for the effects of temperature, creep, and shrinkage; and details of joints and bearings.

The quality of the final structure is highly dependent on material and construction quality measures that improve durability, construction formwork, quality procedures, and inspection of construction. Although many of these aspects may not fall under the direct purview of the structural designer, attention and knowledge are necessary to help ensure a successful execution of the structural design. Information and guidance on these topics can be found in the ACI Manual of Concrete Practice, which is a comprehensive five-volume compendium of current ACI standards and committee reports: (1) Materials and General Properties of Concrete, (2) Construction Practices and Inspection, Pavements, (3) Use of Concrete in Buildings — Design, Specifications, and Related Topics, (4) Bridges, Substructures, Sanitary, and Other Special Structures, Structural Properties, and (5) Masonry, Precast Concrete, Special Processes.
