Perpendicular walls in Shear Wall Design

Perpendicular walls in Shear Wall Design

Perpendicular walls in Shear Wall Design

Hello All

My question is the next: If I do a shear wall design, defining the "Pier section type" as "Simplified T and C" I can get the Pier longitudinal reinforcing concentrated in both ends of the wall, and in the top and the bottom of it.

My problem is that if I have 2 perpendicular walls, the Pier longitudinal reinforcing is different in each wall (and off course, must be the same, because they are sharing the same point).

How can I get the real value for that point?. Thanks!!!

RE: Perpendicular walls in Shear Wall Design

I think you must define the two orthogonal walls with the same pier name. Then you must assign it a general pier section to design it. Then your two walls will be really one wall with two orthogonal components.
