|"Materials and Construction" part inherits the structure of the
Performance Verification-based 2002 version with four parts, including
General, Manuals for Construction (on materials and construction methods),
Manuals for Inspection (on inspection methods), and Particular Concretes.
In General part of gMaterials and Constructionh, by stipulating the required
performance (not mix proportion) the quality of concrete structure will
always be ensured even in cases of new materials, new construction methods
or particular construction conditions. Manuals for Materials and Construction
part provides detailed information on common materials as well as fundamental
construction practices. Here, the introduction of Manuals is more practical
and rational for ordinary construction procedures than conforming to verification
methods. In addition, since most of the items stipulated in gInspectionh
chapter in previous versions were aimed at the owners, a separate Inspection
Manual is created for the ease of user. Above-mentioned matters apply to
normal concretes, Particular Concretes part is separately drafted for specific
types of concrete. By dividing the Specification into two parts, General
and Manuals, it is believed that the Standard Specification for Concrete
Structure has become more user-friendly or easier to use.
