SURVEY OF PERCEPTIONS OF 2014 ACI 318 REORGANIZATION
The University of Pittsburgh is currently conducting research – led by Professor Kent Harries, FACI – aimed at developing an understanding of the role complexity plays in the utility and application of building codes and standards. The reorganization of ACI 318 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete in 2014 presents a unique opportunity to assess and learn from professionals’ experience using and transitioning between two distinct formats of a single code document. We are therefore requesting the participation of ACI membership in a brief (10-12 minutes) questionnaire aimed to better understand your experience using ACI 318. If you are willing to participate, you will be asked about your education background, general questions about your professional position as it relates to the use of ACI 318 and your perceptions of the utility of either or both of ACI 318-11 and ACI 318-14. You will be also asked your opinion of the transition between the 2011 and 2014 versions of ACI 318. Responses will be entirely anonymous. There are no foreseeable risks associated with this project, nor are there any direct benefits to you. The questionnaire can be accessed using the following link o:
