For additional discussion on the concepts and nomenclature for strength design, refer to the Commentary of Chapter 22. stretch length—Length of an anchor over which inelastic elongations are designed to occur under earthquake loadings. Examples illustrating stretch length are shown in Fig. 3. 2 42 BUILDING CODE REQUIREMENTS FOR STRUCTURAL CONCRETE (ACI 318-14) AND COMMENTARY (ACI 318R-14) CODE structural wall, ordinary reinforced concrete—a wall complying with Chapter 11. structural wall, ordinary plain concrete—a wall complying with Chapter 14.
Effective depth of section—distance measured from extreme compression fiber to centroid of longitudinal tension reinforcement. 35 COMMENTARY design displacement—The design displacement is an index of the maximum lateral displacement expected in design for the design-basis earthquake. In documents such as ASCE/SEI 7 and the International Building Code, the design displacement is calculated using static or dynamic linear elastic analysis under code-specified actions considering effects of cracked sections, effects of torsion, effects of vertical forces acting through lateral displacements, and modification factors to account for expected inelastic response.
Concrete, prestressed—concrete in which internal stresses have been introduced to reduce potential tensile stresses in concrete resulting from service loads. concrete, reinforced—concrete reinforced with at least the minimum amounts of nonprestressed or prestressed reinforcement required by this Code. concrete, sand-lightweight—lightweight concrete containing only normalweight fine aggregate that conforms to ASTM C33 and lightweight coarse aggregate that conforms to ASTM C330. concrete, steel fiber-reinforced—concrete containing a prescribed amount of dispersed, randomly oriented, discontinuous deformed steel fibers.
