Slender Bearing Wall Example Using ASDIP CONCRETE

By: Javier Encinas, PE | March 6, 2019 ASDIP CONCRETE is a structural engineering software for design of concrete members. It includes the design of out-of-plane bearing walls based on the latest ACI 318 provisions. The design of out-of-plane loaded walls may become cumbersome and time-consuming, since it involves the analysis of the wall to find the shears and moments, and then the slenderness effects should be accounted for. This document is a step-by-step design example of a typical concrete wall exposed to wind using ASDIP CONCRETE. As an example, consider the concrete tilt-up wall shown below, which is part [...]
