ACI MANUAL OF CONCRETE PRACTICE 1991. PART 2. CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES AND INSPECTION. PAVEMENTS. IDENTIFICATION AND CONTROL OF CONSOLIDATION-RELATED SURFACE DEFECTS IN FORMED CONCRETE

Provides guidelines for identifying and controlling consolidation-related surface defects in precast or cast-in-place formed concrete. It includes a summary of direct and indirect causes of such defects. An outline to assist in the reporting on surface conditions and photographs to illustrate typical concrete surface defects are included. Surface defects may be minimized by proper planning during the design and specification stages. Properly trained and motivated supervisors and construction personnel are of equal importance to achieve the intended concrete finishes and surfaces. The report emphasizes significant consolidation factors that prevent surface defects.
