Re: Banded and distributed tendons

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Ronald,

Clause 18.12.4 covers this.

Banded tendons in both directions would not provide a load path to the supports for the middle area of  slab. in each panel, unless it was designed and reinforced separately to span as a 2way slab panel to the bands in each direction.

Are there a specific requirements in the code to design a flat slab using banded tendons? Why do we use distributed tendon instead of banded tendons on other direction if it is a two flat palte design?
 
Thanks,
Ronald Garcia
