The American Concrete Institute's (ACI) Legal Issues in Concrete Construction, Second Edition, a new publication for concrete industry designers, suppliers and contractors, is now available.

Jeffrey Coleman, author, provides interpretations of the courts’ findings and contrasts the decisions with other results where possible. This second edition of Legal Issues in Concrete Construction contains over 150 cases—more than three times the number of cases as the first edition—and it assembles the cases into 23 chapters. 

This new edition is reorganized around key topics including cracking, load tickets, responsibility for mix and more. These unique topics can be found only in this publication. The first chapter provides a basic primer on concrete and is followed by chapters organized around specific construction and legal topics. 

The complete report "ACI 132R-14 - Guide for Responsibility in Concrete Construction" has been included as Appendix C.
