RE: Coupling Beams - Diagonal Reinf Development Length

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You have to let the diagonal reinforcement transfer its full capacity to the
reinforcement on the walls, that is, you will need full development length
at each side.  The factor 1.5 suggested by Prof. Paulay is just another
extension of the principles of the capacity design philosophy: you don't
want a bond failure in your beams.
