Can special concrete shear walls be precast in ASCE7-05?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Can you have special concrete shear walls that are "precast" in a building
frame system with ASCE 7-05?  ASCE 7-05 Table 12.14-1 only lists
"intermediate precast shear walls" and "ordinary precast shear walls" in the
building frame systems stuff.   

There are "special reinforced concrete shear walls" listed but not "special
reinforced precast shear walls".  ACI 318-05 has requirements for special
precast walls.  ASCE 7-05 14.2.2.10 has amendments to ACI 318-05 21.8.1 for
special precast walls.

I am assuming special precast walls are allowed under the "special reinforced
concrete shear walls".
