Design story drift of story x, in. = maximum deflection, during first load test, measured 24 hours after application of the full test load, in. = maximum deflection, during second load test, measured 24 hours after application of the full test load. Deflection is measured relative to the position of the structure at the beginning of the second load test, in. 3—Terminology adhesive—chemical components formulated from organic polymers, or a combination of organic polymers and inorganic materials that cure if blended together.
Such terms as building commissioner or building inspector are variations of the title, and the term “building official” as used in this Code, is intended to include those variations, as well as others that are used in the same sense. cementitious materials—materials that have cementing value if used in concrete either by themselves, such as portland cement, blended hydraulic cements, and expansive cement; or such materials in combination with fly ash, other raw or calcined natural pozzolans, silica fume, and slag cement.
Post-tensioning—method of prestressing in which prestressing reinforcement is tensioned after concrete has hardened. precompressed tension zone—portion of a prestressed member where flexural tension, calculated using gross section properties, would occur under service loads if the prestress force was not present. pretensioning—method of prestressing in which prestressing reinforcement is tensioned before concrete is cast. projected area—area on the free surface of the concrete member that is used to represent the greater base of the assumed rectilinear failure surface.
