Load Bearing Concrete Walls

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
You can find the design an/or concept difference between column and wall type elements
in "Seismic Design and Retrofit of Bridges" written by Priestly et al.

To my understanding, there is no tie requirements in walls at weak direction due to the ultimate state concept. As for strong direction, ties have to be used to prevent longitudinal rebar buckling.

For more information refer to the abovementioned book.
