Concrete Connections

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Title: Concrete Connections

I'm designing a concrete swimming pool that must be treated as an elevated slab supported on piles, with the walls behaving as deep flexural members.  Can anyone point me to a reference that discusses connection fixity or pinned conditions?  I have to put rebar at the top and bottom of the walls to tie slabs together.  How do I know whether this is fixed or pinned?  Can't this end condition be controlled by the designer and how?  Thanks in advance for any responses.
