CMU Shear Wall Tension Steel

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

If perpendicular walls at the ends of shear walls are used as flanges at a shear wall will the tension steel only be that at the end of the "web", or can the next bar within the "flange" be used as additional tension steel.  I am looking at a remodel where using the additional steel in the "flange" would be a big help.
