ACI 352R: Recommendations for Design of Beam-Column Connections in Monolithic Reinforced Concrete Structures

Publication Date: Jan 1, 2002 SDO: ACI: American Concrete Institute DOD Adopted ANSI Approved Approved These recommendations apply only to structures using normalweight concrete with a compressive strength fc not exceeding 15,000 psi (100 MPa) in the connections. From consideration of recent research results of connections with concrete compressive strengths of up to 15,000 psi (100 MPa), ACI Committee 352 has extended the limits of the recommendations to include high-strength concrete (Guimaraes, Kreger, and Jirsa 1992; Saqan and Kreger 1998; Sugano et al. 1991). The committee believes that further research demonstrating the performance and design requirements of connections with lightweight-aggregate concrete is required before the scope of these recommendations can extend beyond normalweight concrete. These recommendations are applicable to structures in which mechanical splices are used, provided that the mechanical splices meet the requirements of Section 21.2.6 of ACI 318-02 and the recommendations of the Commentary to Section 21.2.6 of ACI 318-02.

Overview of the Revised ACI ASCE 352 Committee Recommendations for Design of Beam Column Connections in Monolithic Reinforced Concrete Structures

Alcocer Professor, Institute of Engineering, UNAM, Circuito Escolar, Ciudad Universitaria, Mexico, DF, 04510 Abstract The extended damage in beamcolumn connections, particularly during earthquakes, prompted researchers and designers in the 1970's to investigate the behavior of that region, as well as to develop analysis and design criteria. The ACIASCE 352 Committee published the first comprehensive technical guideline for the analysis, design and detailing of beamcolumn joints in 1976. Since then, the report, and its revisions, has been widely used by designers throughout the world, thus leading to better designs or reinforced concrete (RC) frame buildings. Moreover, this document has served as a cornerstone for the development of RC building codes in different countries. The simple, yet conservative, model of joint behavior and the document format are most appealing to the practice. It is the aim of this paper to briefly describe the evolution of ACIASCE 352 Committee report on beam column joints (now referred to connections), and to briefly present main modifications and additions to the most recent revision. 2004 ASCE
