Title: Analysis of Transfer Girder System
Author(s): Joseph P. Colaco and Zaven H. Lambajian
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 774-778
Keywords: frames; multistory buildings; reinforced concrete; structural analysis; transfer girders
Abstract:Analyzes a transfer girder system considering the changes in the stiffness of the system with the construction of every story. The system considered was a symmetrical bay with the columns and spandrels having constant stiffness at every story. Graphs are presented in nondimensional form to compute load transferred due to shear in the spandrels.
