This presentation was developed by the Research Engineering and Standards Committee of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association (NRMCA). It discusses the general concept and benefits of minimizing prescription and incorporating performance-based alternatives for concrete mixtures in project specifications. Obstacles to performance-based specifications and available resources will be discussed. The primary focus of the presentation is on specific prescriptive items most commonly found in actual specifications; real or perceived basis for the requirement; possible problems caused by these requirements; suggested alternatives; and benefits of these alternatives. These suggestions are consistent with industry standards like ACI 318 and ACI 301.

Purpose

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) is a nonprofit technical and educational society organized in 1904 and is one of the world's leading authorities on concrete technology.  ACI is a forum for the discussion of all matters related to concrete and the development of solutions to problems.  ACI's Vision is to be universally recognized for its comprehensive knowledge, guidance, and influence regarding concrete and its application.

The Kansas Chapter was formed in 1974 to bring together individuals and groups in the state of Kansas who have an interest in concrete.  The goal of the Kansas Chapter is to further the chartered objectives of the American Concrete Institute, improving the design, construction, use, and maintenance of concrete products and structures by discussing and disseminating technical and educational information.
