AREMA Serviceability Requirements

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Can someone familiar with the latest AREMA 2002 Serviceability Requirements for Concrete Structures comment on the practicality of the Fatigue and Distribution of Flexural Reinforcement equations. Does anyone know if AREMA have any kind of guidelines for the applicability of those two requirements, like some Examples on how to apply them to real cases ? It looks like AREAMA and ACI are not up to par with the Distribution of Flexural Requirements, AREMA still uses the Z factor. Can anyone, Please comment on this.
