Re: Reinforced Concrete "PILASTER" Design

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Teresa,

A pilaster is a column that is designed to support a concentrated load and
that is partially built into a wall (not freestanding).

It sounds like you may be looking for the rules for designing corbels and
brackets.  See ACI Section 11.9.
