When the title of the 1989 Code (Revised 1992) was changed from “Building Code Requirements for Reinforced Concrete” to Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete (ACI 318–95), Chapter 22 on structural plain concrete was added. Structural plain concrete is defined as either unreinforced or with less reinforcement than specified in the Code for reinforced concrete (Section 2.1). Chapter 22 provides minimum requirements for design and construction of structural plain concrete members (cast-in-place or precast).
