Outstanding issues

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have posted the following questions a couple of weeks ago and have not received answeres. Let's try it one more time:


1. Would somebody please recommend a good reference (maybe with numerical examples) for the analysis of rigid diaphragms with openings. I am primarily interested in concrete and composite decks with big holes, but also in concrete shear walls with door openings (I have the book by Paulay and Priestley).

2. I have heard various rumors to what extent SE exam-takers supposed to reference the code sections/equations. Would you please clarify?


3. Could someone please explain the rational  for the use or not-use of dispersion in the development of Response Spectra, as it relates to the design of new or evaluation of existing structures.
