Concrete Beam Bearing Length

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have a one-way slab system that has beams supported by concrete bearing walls.  How would I figure out the minimum length of bearing of the beam?  Would I use the concrete bearing strength equation in ACI 10.17  --> Bearing < phi(.85*fc'*A1)?
