Title: High-Rise Concrete Shear Walls Subject to Service Loads

Author(s): Neil Wexler and Hoonhee Jeoung

Publication: Concrete International

Volume: 41

Issue: 12

Appears on pages(s): 37-41

Keywords: crack, load, deflection, building

Date: 12/1/2019


The article provides a method for determining effective moment of inertia Ie for calculation of in-plane wall deflections using unfactored load. The method results in a map of the cracked concrete zones, and it allows calculation of Ie values that vary with the extent of cracking. The method provides a smooth transition between cracked and uncracked section properties, and it is suitable for manual calculations as well as computer models.
