Precst Shear Wall Systems

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Questions:
1.  How are UBC Sections 1921.2.1.6 and 1629.9.2 intended to be applied to
lateral force resisting systems comprised of precast concrete panels with
discrete mechanical (welded) connectors?  What difference does it make
whether the panels are load bearing or non-load bearing?

2.  For the case of a bearing wall system comprised of precast concrete
panels, how are UBC Sections 1921.2.1.7 and 1921.2.2.7 intended to be
applied?

I am new on the list - if these matters have been addressed previously, I
will appreciate the references.
