RE: Looking for a good Shearwall/Diaphragm Analysis Reference

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Nicole,

"Reinforced Masonry Engineering Handbook" by James Amrhein is one of the
best references I have.  He explains rigidity and shear distribution in
an easy to understand way.  I believe the latest copy is the 5th
edition, but I could be wrong about that.  It's published by the Masonry
Institute of America.

Good luck,

I am new to the list and I am getting ready to take the PE exam.  

I was wondering if anyone knew of a really good book that had sample
problems of how to distribute shear, find center of rigidity, etc on
various shear wall layouts.  It seems I have always had easy ones when I
had to design them.  The sample PE exam has harder examples and I find
that I have trouble with more complicated layouts. 

Our firm mostly designs steel framed buildings also, so I am weak in the
concrete and masonry shear wall areas.

So if you have a great reference that you think would help me, I'd
really appreciate it! 

Thanks,
Nicole
