Concrete Wall (Special Reinforced Concrete Shear Wall) ACI 318-08 6 Years ago Karma: 0  
The International Building Code (IBC) requires all concrete walls in seismic category D, E, and F, must be designed as a Special Reinforced Concrete Shear Wall. Basically all concrete walls in the West Coast of the US must be designed as a special wall.

The calcs in this spreadsheet are transparent unlike the typical blackbox calculations.

Also the figure of the wall in the spreadsheet changes with the input parameters.

The spreadsheet checks essentially all of the applicable codes in the ACI 318-08. The spreadsheet contains extensive boolean programming to address the convoluted nature of the code provisions for special concrete structural walls.

Anyone who has designed a special concrete structural wall knows how extremely complicated it can be, and will surely appreciate how easy to use and how thorough this spreadsheet is.

Surely this should worth much more than a 3 month membership =)
