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 ...
Effects of alkali-silica reaction on the shear behavior of reinforced concrete beams without transverse reinforcement
Alkali-silica reaction, or ASR, is a common deterioration mechanism that subjects concrete to internal expansive stresses. Previous research on the structural effects of ASR has shown that if a structure is effectively ...
Shear strength and effects of HDPE plastic post-tensioning duct on a prestressed girder
The goal of the splice girder research project 0-6652 funded by the Texas Department of Transportation is to utilize the full potential of splicing prestressed TX girders continuously. The TX girder family of beams is ...
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 ...
