ACI 318-2002

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Does anyone have a copy of ACI 318-2002.  I have a question about the
revised section 11.8 which covers Shear in Deep Beams.

First, what is the definition of a Deep Beam for shear ?

Second, is there a "simplified" method for calculating V_c for deep beams
(in ACI318-99 you could assume that V_c was 2(f'c)^.5 * b * d ),
or are you required to use the Strut-and-tie method ?


Thanks
