Can we have calculations for boundary zone length in wall design?
Boundary elements are provided for ductile walls as per IS 13920. Governing Criteria to provide Boundary element is if stress is more than 0.2*fck and Boundary wall terminates (along the height of wall) if stress is less than 0.15fck. Zoning of reinforcement is done around the boundary element. The initial length of the boundary element is arrived at as per procedure discussed in help.
