Evaluation of the Simplified Concrete Wall Design Equation in AS3600-2009

Australian Journal of Structural Engineering
Volume 10 Issue 3 (2010)

Abstract: The recently-released Australian Concrete Standard, AS3600-2009, has been extensively revised with particular emphasis on the inclusion of design rules for high-strength concrete. For the simplified design of axially-loaded concrete walls, the guidelines have been changed to include new effective height factors for different support conditions and to allow for higher concrete strengths. Initially the updated guidelines and scope of the simplified equation are provided. Load capacity predictions using the simplified method are then evaluated against a number of test results obtained from recent research. Finally, a typical case study is presented to illustrate the extended scope of the new rules.
