basement wall moment redistribution

basement wall moment redistribution

basement wall moment redistribution

im designing a reinforced concrete basement. can anyone help me with the moment redistribution? the wall is fixed on all four sides. is redistribution necessary? or can i design the wall another way. i am using the hillerborg strip method at the moment. thanks!

RE: basement wall moment redistribution

Do you really mean fixed or just restrained?

RE: basement wall moment redistribution

i mean fixed to the wall spanning in the other direction.

RE: basement wall moment redistribution

If the moments are from transverse soil loads, I do not seed the need for moment redistribution.

If this wall system is for a residence, moment redistribution for lateral forces (wind or seismic, or soil) is rarely, if ever done.  

If this is for a commercial structure, then maybe.
