Title: Walls Under Compression and Bending in Their Own Planes
Author(s): Arieh L . Abolitz
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 32-37
Keywords: axial loads;bending moments;columns (supports);compressive strength; reinforced concrete;reinforcing steels;shearwalls;structural analysis;structural design;ultimate strength method;walls.
Abstract:Shearwalls and wide columns are often loaded in compression combined with bending in their own planes. On the basis of the observation that reinforcement has to carry only those loads which are in excess of loads taken by the concrete, strength design formulas and charts are developed.
