Abstract:

Does the new ACI 318-19 Code1 allow the use of Grade 80 steel for earthquake-induced moment, axial force, or both, in special moment frames or shear walls?

As part of an asset management project, I’m trying to put life expectancy numbers to reinforced concrete sanitary structures. However, I’m having no luck finding reference materials that contain this information. Can you point me to any publication that discusses the life expectancy of reinforced concrete structures (sanitary or other)?
