TRANSFER OF UNBALANCED MOMENT AND SHEAR FROM FLAT PLATES TO COLUMNS

A REFINEMENT OF CURRENT METHODS FOR CALCULATING THE STRENGTH OF SLAB-COLUMN JUNCTIONS CARRYING UNBALANCED MOMENT AND SHEAR IN FLAT PLATE CONCRETE STRUCTURES IS DESCRIBED. THE SLAB SECTIONS FRAMING INTO EACH COLUMN FACE ARE IDEALIZED AS BEAM SECTIONS WHICH CAN DEVELOP THE ULTIMATE BENDING MOMENT, TORQUE, OR SHEAR APPROPRIATE FOR THE GIVEN LOADING CONDITION. THIS PROCEDURE PREDICTS THE STRENGTHS MEASURED IN LABORATORY TESTS, SIMULATING CONNECTIONS AT BOTH INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR COLUMNS. IT IS SHOWN THAT, IN ADDITION TO FLEXURE, TWO MODES OF FAILURE ARE POSSIBLE, MOMENT-TORSION AND SHEAR-TORSION. /ACI/
