Abstract:
This guide provides recommendations for determining proportions and details of monolithic reinforced and post-tensioned concrete slab-column connections. Included are recommendations regarding appropriate uses of slab-column connections in structures resisting gravity and lateral forces; procedures for determination of connection load-carrying capacity; and reinforcement details to achieve adequate strength, ductility, and structural integrity. Recommendations are based on a review of the literature for ultimate and serviceability limit states. A commentary is provided to clarify the recommendations and identify reference material. Design recommendations are set in standard type. Commentary is set in italics.
