Load Bearing Concrete Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In multi-story load bearing walls, at what axial load level should one consider meeting the column tie requirements (ACI 318-95  7.10) and minimum column reinforcement ratios? Commentary ACI 318-95 R7.10.3 says that wall like columns may require special designs.

Any references and/or experience would be helpful.
