RC Shearwall for Highrise Building

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hi All!
 
Based on ACI 318-05, as I understand it, shearwalls for highrise buildings should be designed for shear and flexure.  And designing it for flexure would mean that the minimum reinforcement on any face the wall should not be less than 1.4/Fy.
 
Am I wrong about this?
 
Regards to all  :)
