Re: Pinned joint of Concrete Structures

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If the structure is for the seismic design, you can say seismic system or
non-seismic system. you need to design the seismic system based on the seismic
design procedure. and the non-seismic system based on the compatibility.

If the structure is for the gravity only, the pin connection can be detailed.
For example, if the pin-end beam is connected to column, you can make a corbel
at the column so the beam can sit on the corbel. It totally depends on the

I hope it help you.
