1. Plastic zones

There are considered plastic zones of the structural walls the following situations:

for the coupling beams, the whole span;

for the structural walls (isolated or coupled), the zone having the length lp measured from their base:

lp = 0.4h + 0.05H

In the case of multistory buildings, this dimension is upward averaged to a whole number of stories, if the limit of the plastic zone exceeds the height of a level with more than 0.2Hlevel. If not, it is downward averaged to a whole number of stories.

The zone from the base of the wall limited in this way is called Zone A.

The rest of the wall, less loaded and with reduced design demands compared with zone A, is called Zone B.

2. The dimensioning values of the sectional efforts.

2.1. The dimensioning values M of the bending moments

The values are determined with relations from the figure:

a) In over structure (above the infrastructure or foundation):

M = kMwMs wMs,o

b) In infrastructure:

M = 1,5wMs


Ms = bending moment from the design seismic loading; at the basement level has the value Ms, o;

w = .. between the overturning moments;

Mo, cap = computed at the basement level of the structure, associated to the strength capacity of the structural wall, cantilevered or coupled, and the value of the overturning moment;

Mo = from the design seismic loading (see the figure):

Mi,cap = the capable moment at the base of cantilever wall i;

Ni = the axial effort at the base of the cantilever wall i, produced by the horizontal forces, in the case of the plastification of the coupling beams extremities;

Li = the distance from the axis of the cantilever wall i to the reference point with respect to whom the moments are computed;

kM = correction coefficient of the walls bending efforts.

2.2. The dimensioning values Q of the shear forces

In the case of the structures for which the seismic forces are taken over in totality by the structural walls, the value of Q is determined with the relation:

1,5Qs Q = kQ w Qs 4 kQ Qs


Qs = the shear force from the design seismic loading;

kQ = correction coefficient of the shear forces:

kQ = 1 + 0,03n

n = the number of stories

2.3. The value of the design shear force for the coupling beams

It is determined with:


the absolute values of the capable moments in the sections at the extremities of the coupling beams, from both senses of action of the moments, established on the base of the design strength Ra of the reinforcement; for the value of Mcapsup, the reinforcement contribution in the active zone of the floor will be taken into consideration;

lr = lo = the span of the coupling beam.

2.4. The dimensioning axial forces from the coupling walls

The dimensioning axial forces from the coupling beams are estabished on the base of the wall equilibrium in the situation of plastified coupling beams, but without the 25% increased value of the bending strength capacity ,considered in the above relation.

3. The computation of the longitudinal and transversal reinforcement of the structural walls

3.1. The computation of the longitudinal reinforcement

The computation of eccentrical compression (tension) of the structural walls is made according to the prescriptions from the STAS 10107/0-90 code.

3.2. The computation of the structural walls for the shear force

The computation for the shear force is made in inclined sections and horizontal sections at the casting level.

a) The computation in inclined sections

In the case of the structural walls with the ratio between the elevation height and the section height H/h > 1, the dimensioning of horizontal reinforcement Aa o for the shear force in inclined sections is based on relation:

Q Qb + 0,8 Aao Ra


Aa o = the sum of the horizontal reinforcement sections intersected by a 45o inclined crack, including the belt beams reinforcement and the continuous reinforcement from the active zone of the floor (include three floor heights on both sides of wall), if the crack crosses the floor;

Qb = the shear force taken over by the concrete, with the values:

Qb = 0,3bhso 0,6bhRt for the zone A of the wall;

Qb = bh(0,7Rt + 0,25so for the zone B of the wall.

the average compression stress in wall section. When is tension, is taken with minus sign in zone B and zero in zone A.

b) The computation in horizontal sections at casting levels.

The dimensioning is made according to the prescriptions from the STAS 10107/0-90 code.

4. The computation of the reinforcement from the coupling beams

The computation of the longitudinal reinforcement is made according to the prescriptions from the STAS 10107/0- 90 code.

4.1. Coupling beams reinforced with horizontal bars in stirrups

The transversal reinforcing is determined from condition that these ones have to take over the whole design shear force, according to relation:


Aae = the necessary area of the section of one stirrup;

ae = the distance between the stirrups;

ne = the number of the stirrup legs.

4.2. Coupling beams reinforced with inclined bars

The area Aai of the inclined reinforcement on each diagonal is determined with the relation:

where = the inclination angle of reinforcement.

For the zone B the minimum overlapping lengths are with 10d less than those from the table. Also, in the zone B it is not necessary the overlapping by welding of the reinforcement with d 16(20) mm.

1.2. The reinforcement anchorage

a) Horizontal bars from the belt beams and the horizontal independent bars from the field reinforcement at intersections in T or L shapes.

Bars with.: la = 40d (OB 37, PC 52, PC60)

Bars without:  la = 40d (PC 52, PC60)

The mesh, which form the continuous reinforcement of the walls, will be connected with hooks in order to insure their position during the concreting.

Usually, there will be at least:

4 hooks/m2 for bars with d < 8 mm;

6 hooks/m2 for bars with d > 8 mm.

The local reinforcement will have to obey, from the point of view of distribution and the minimum number of bars, the details from the figure:

The concentrated reinforcement together with the vertical reinforcement situated in the web and the flange of the walls, including that in the intermediary intersections, have to insure the wall section a superior bending strength capacity compared to the cracking moment Mf of the section, determined with:

Mf = Nrs + 0.5 cpl Wf Rt


rs = distance from the center of gravity of the section to limit of the central core, situated on the same part with the eccentrically force N;

Wf = the cracking resistance modulus of the section, computed considering the tension zone completely plastificated;

cpl = coefficient which takes into consideration the partial plastification of the tensioned zone of the section; see table 15, STAS 10107/0-90.

The stirrups of the cage will be made such that their area have at least the same strength capacity as the horizontal reinforcement from the adjacent fields. In the case when this reinforcement is interrupted in the cage, it is properly overlapped with the cage stirrups.

3.2. The confining reinforcement in the compressed zones

If the height of the compressed zone of the sections, when the strength capacity is reached, is higher than the limit value (x > xlim), a special confining reinforcement in the compressed zone will be realized on a length of at least x/2.

The confining reinforcement quantity Aa o, in each direction is computed with relation:


ae = axial distance between sets of confining stirrups;

c = dimension of the central core between the confining stirrups, measured perpendicular to the stirrups braces;

Also, in the Aa o reinforcement can be considered the horizontal reinforcement of the web, if this one is bent after the vertical bars and properly anchored.

In the zones where the longitudinal reinforcement percentage takes over the value 2/Ra (N/mm2), supplementary measures will be taken such that to avoid buckling of the bars situated in the potential plastic zone. The confining reinforcement Aa o can have this role. In these zones it is recommended that the transversal connection by stirrups and hooks of the vertical bars with diameter d > 16 mm to be done with a maximum distance of 6d.
