Specifies minimum requirements for the design and construction of concrete building structures and members that contain reinforcing steel or tendons, or both. Also sets out requirements for plain concrete and pedestal footings.

This Standard sets out minimum requirements for the design and construction of concrete building structures and members that contain reinforcing steel or tendons, or both. It also sets out minimum requirements for plain concrete pedestals and footings.NOTES:1 The general principles of concrete design and construction and the criteria embodied in this Standard may be appropriate for concrete structures other than buildings, members not specifically mentioned herein and to materials outside the limits given in Clause 1.1.2.2 It is intended that the design of a structure or member to which this Standard applies be carried out by, or under the supervision of, a suitably experienced and competent person.3 For guidance on the design of maritime structures, refer to AS 4997.This Standard is not intended to apply to the design of mass concrete structures. ApplicationThis Standard applies to structures and members in which the materials conform to the following:Concrete with-characteristic compressive strength at 28 days in the range of 20 MPa to 100 MPa; andwith a saturated surface-dry density in the range 1800 kg/m3 to 2800 kg/m3.Reinforcing steel of Ductility Class N in accordance with AS/NZS 4671. These reinforcing materials may be used, without restriction, in all applications referred to in this Standard.Reinforcing steel of Ductility Class L in accordance with AS/NZS 4671-may be used as main or secondary reinforcement in the form of welded wire mesh, or as wire, bar and mesh in fitments; butshall not be used in any situation where the reinforcement is required to undergo large plastic deformation under strength limit state conditions. The use of Ductility Class L reinforcement is further limited by other clauses within the Standard.Prestressing tendons complying with AS/NZS 4672.1 and tested in accordance with AS/NZS 4672.2. ExclusionsThe requirements of this Standard shall not take precedence over design requirements and material specifications set out in other Australian Standards that deal with specific types of structures, such as concrete residential slabs and footings, and swimming pools.
