Re: CSW - Concrete Shear Wall w/ Openings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This is what I do:
Draw a horizontal line at the top oh the window and another one at the 
bottom, you have three bands. Top and bottom bands are conventional design. 
Next, combine the right two piers and lintel in one equivalent pier that 
then you combine with the left pier and so on.
This is an approximate method, use FEM if more accurate results are needed.
Good luck.
