Re: Typical axial load ratios for concrete low-aspect ratio shear walls

Jake -

I'm looking at C-I-P low rise facilities which might have been
initially designed as 1-2 story storage facilities, but might
also have been initially intended to serve as office space.
Some of the spaces have 50'+ lengths of wall in each direction,
occasionally with intermediate columns, usually without any type
of flare or capital.  I can't offer anything more specific.

The DoE is not terribly forthcoming with information about
their building inventory, and what specific information I do
have I can't disclose for security reasons, or so I'm told.
Lovely times we live in.

Thanks again to all who've offered comments and suggestions.
