With the committee chair's trip canceled at the last minute, a surprise guest chaired the Fall 2012 ACI 522 meeting -- me!
Here's what happened:
1) While a little behind schedule, the committee continues to make progress on the third version of ACI 522R. Based on where we stand, I'd guess the committee is still a year away from submitting to TAC. Norb Delatte reported his task group will submit a draft that includes structural design tables.
2) The standard details are coming closer to reality. The original intent behind this was to create a stand-alone document to post online on the CKC, however, with the timing of 522R, it is more likely to be added as an appendix to the next version of 522R.
3) I'm happy to report the committee successfully balloted its response to TAC comments. The debate lasted over 2-1/2 hours covering exciting topics like internal curing, adoption of ASTM C 1754, basis of purchase, and responsibilities.
