Recommendations for Design of Beam-Column Connections in Monolithic Reinforced Concrete Structures
|Publication Date:||1 January 2002|
These recommendations apply only to structures using normalweight concrete with a compressive strength fc¢ not exceeding 15,000 psi (100 MPa) in the connections.
From consideration of recent research results of connections with concrete compressive strengths of up to 15,000 psi (100 MPa), ACI Committee 352 has extended the limits of the recommendations to include high-strength concrete (Guimaraes, Kreger, and Jirsa 1992; Saqan and Kreger 1998; Sugano et al. 1991). The committee believes that further research demonstrating the performance and design requirements of connections with lightweight-aggregat
