Jim, I'm not sure exactly what you need here (I only skimmed your message)
but it might be satisfactorily answered by telling you that the original
publication of the paper/report by Ronald Cook, published by PCI (I think; I
have the publication but it's buried in another room right now) contains
more information than what shows up in ACI 318 Appendix D.

If you'd like, I will be glad to fax or email you the pertinent information 
that might help you adjust your design assumptions.
