flanged reinforced masonry shear walls ACI vs FEMA

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
FEMA 368 says you can consider flanges if the face shells are removed at wall intersections ( 11.10.6)  ACI 530-02 doesn't have that requirement, but it does require design for the vertical shear stress at the intersection.
Does anyone know if the FEMA 368 requirement was discussed during balloting for ACI 530 and, if so, why it was rejected?
Also, does anyone know if the FEMA 368 requirement will be in the successor to FEMA 368, or will it be changed to match ACI 530?
