Guide for Design and Construction with Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Panels
|Publication Date:||1 June 2009|
This guide is limited to AAC with a density of 50 lb/ft3 (800 kg/m3) or less. It is written for structural designers. It addresses design using factory-reinforced AAC panels. Design of AAC masonry is addressed in other documents (Masonry Standards Joint Committee 2005a,b).
Design documents produced by ACI technical committees are classified as standards or nonstandards. The latter include guides, which are intended to present directions for analysis, design, construction, materials, or testing on a general basis. Their language is nonmandatory, permitting the user latitude in judgment concerning particular needs.
