1997 UCBC Section A506.3 Development of Anchor Loads into Diaphr agm

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
1997 UCBC Section A506.3 "Development of Anchor Loads into the Diaphragm"
last paragraph states:

...At re-entrant corners where continuity collectors do not exist, they
shall be provided.  New collectors shall be designed to the capacity
required to develop into the diaphragm of a force equal to the lesser of the
rocking or shear capacity of the re-entrant wall, or the tributary shear.

Can any direct me on how to correctly calculate the "rocking" of a
re-entrant corner wall.  I can't seem to find any example or direction
