The maximum ultimate shear flow equal to 1.67 kip-ft occurs in the diaphragm at line A. This is less than the capacity 7.3 kip-ft. Therefore, by calculations, no shear reinforcement is required. However, provide #4 @ 18 in. the N-S direction at middepth of slab for a width equal to 5 ft.

Collector (Drag-Strut) Design. For purposes of illustration, the drag strut along line A will be designed. The collected shear of 100 kips must be delivered from the slab to the shear wall on line A. This can be done by providing reinforcement perpendicular to the wall.

Using the special seismic load combination

With one #4 reinforcement at top and bottom, and at 12-in. on centers,

Renewable Energy 101

Renewable energy is energy that is generated from sunlight, rain, tides, geothermal heat and wind. These sources are naturally and constantly replenished, which is why they are deemed as renewable. The usage of renewable energy sources is very important when considering the sustainability of the existing energy usage of the world. While there is currently an abundance of non-renewable energy sources, such as nuclear fuels, these energy sources are depleting. In addition to being a non-renewable supply, the non-renewable energy sources release emissions into the air, which has an adverse effect on the environment.
