8.3. Working session
8.3.1. The consensus of the committee at the last meeting (Dallas) was that we wanted
to expand the scope of the 366.2R document to include simple footing. The name
of the document could be changed to Footings and Mats instead of Combined
Footings and Mats. JoAnn Browning will confirm whether TAC has any issue
with this revision of scope.
8.3.2. ACI336.2R will be written to 2 audiences: The Geotechnical Engineer (GE) who
is defining the soils properties used by both the GE and the Structural Engineer
8.3.3. The document needs to consider the iterative process between the SE and the GE.
The document needs to help both the SE and GE complete their work. No flow
chart is possible, instead use a framework for the thought process and interaction.
Starting point is sometimes a system of discreet individual of footings side by
side. The document needs to consider more than teamwork, it needs to consider
mutual understanding and respect.
8.3.4. David Hartman prepared a draft outline for Chapter 5. This document will be
forwarded to Ed Ulrich for his use.
8.3.5. Ed will generate a draft of Chapter 5 and send to the committee for review
sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
8.3.6. Chapter 9 Mats on deep foundations Rudy will update the current draft version
by the next ACI 336 meeting.
8.3.7. Chapter 10 Construction Sam Harsh agreed to generate a draft for this chapter
8.4. Review chairs proposed responses
8.5. Develop responses to remaining comments
9. Open Discussion of Current Issues in Construction (Footings, Mats, or Drilled Piers)

10. Adjourn
Motion: Adjourn, B. Hertlein; Second: R. Frizzi; Vote: unanimously approved.
The meeting was adjourned at 4:18 p.m.
