Behavior of slender beams without stirrups: effects of load distribution and member depth
Though uniform loading is common in structures, the vast majority of all shear strength tests on slender reinforced concrete members without stirrups have been performed using concentrated loading. Furthermore, the uniform ...
Effect of uniform load on the shear strength of slender beams without shear reinforcement
Previous studies have shown that a uniform distribution of load may increase the shear strength of a slender member by as much as 40 percent (Leonhardt and Walther 1964). The increase of shear strength is potentially due ...
