Re: what is the allowable beam opening?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
        If you can find a copy, the PCI Journal had an article in the Nov-Dec 1977 issue on beams with large openings. However, they were prestressed and they take advantage of moment capacity below the hole (and N.A.) that Scott mentions is not useful in reinforced beams.
