This paper presents very recent results of an experimental program aimed at disclosing size and strain rate effects on the fracture behavior of reinforced concrete beams. Thirty-six reinforced beams made from two microconcretes with different Hillerborg’s characteristic length [one is 66 mm (material A), the other is mm (material B)], of. For reinforced concrete beams this can be done by the Cracks, Strains, and Stresses in test beam (From Nawy’s Book). Figure CIVL 88 Flexure Flexure Strength There are two possible ways that a reinforced beam can fail.

Glazed hollow bead insulation concrete (GHBC) presents a promising application prospect in terms of its light weight and superior fire resistance. However, only a few studies have focused on the creep behaviour of GHBC exposed to high temperatures. Therefore, in this study, the mechanism of high temperature on GHBC is analysed through a series of tests on uniaxial . This paper presents an experimental investigation on the size effect in large prestressed-concrete deep beams. Twelve specimens with a total main-steel-and-strand ratio rc maintained close to % were tested to failure; two parameters were studied: viz. beam height h, ranging from to mm, and shear-span-to-height ratio a/h, varying.

Laboratory tests were carried out on concrete beams with longitudinal bars and without shear reinforcement.

Slender concrete beams with steel bars were Cited by: Moreover, with a larger beam size, one can expect less strain in the FRPs. A nonlinear finite-element numerical analysis is developed to model the behavior of the CFRP shear-strengthened beams. The numerical model is able to simulate the characteristics of the shear-strengthened beams, including the interfacial behavior between the concrete and Cited by: Size Effects in Reinforced Concrete Beams Strengthened with CFRP Hence different forms of stirrups such as truss model, inclined stirrups and bracing type are used.

Small-scale. The size effect is therefore often formulated in terms of a combination of both statistical and energetic size effects with regard to the total depth of concrete members. Due to the diversity in the formulation of shear models, there are many discussions on the size effect in existing shear : Ngoc Linh Tran.

Most previous studies on concrete short columns confined with fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites were based on small-scale testing, and size effect of the columns still has not been studied thoroughly. Such models typically necessitate large scale factors of between 1 ∶ 20 and 1 ∶which is significantly larger than most conventional small-scale structural modeling.

A new model concrete has been developed consisting of plaster, water, and fine sand as a geometrically scaled coarse aggregate that can produce a range of model concretes. Size effect in reinforced concrete beams could be described by the analytical deterministic (energetic) size effect law (SEL) of Type II by Bazant [2], being valid for structures of a positive similar geometry possessing large stress-free cracks that grow in a stable manner up to the maximum load.

An analytical model based on the strut-and-tie method for predicting the shear strength of reinforced concrete (RC) interior beam–column joints is introduced in this paper. Both contributions from truss and strut mechanisms are included in the analytical model.

After sketching the history of the size effect models for the shear strength of reinforced concrete (RC) in design codes, the energy-based size effect law (SEL), recently incorporated into the American Concrete Institute (ACI) design code articles for beam shear and slab punching, is briefly discussed.

Models based on fracture mechanics to evaluate minimum flexural reinforcement are also reviewed. Experimental study has been undertaken to understand the effect of size on the behaviour of lightly RC beams. This paper outlines how the present code provisions can be improved by applying fracture mechanics principles for the design of RC beams.

Size effect is a phenomenon in reinforced-concrete beams associated with a reduction of shear strength owing to an increase in member size. It is postulated here that the size effect is related to the effectiveness of strut-and-tie model (STM), the mobilisation of which largely depends on the strut geometry and the strut boundary conditions.

Design of rectangular reinforced concrete beam procedure. The design of concrete beam includes the estimation of cross section dimension and reinforcement area to resist applied loads. There are two approaches for the design of beams. Firstly, begin the design by selecting depth and width of the beam then compute reinforcement area.

This paper deals with the blast-resistant performance of steel fiber-reinforced concrete (SFRC) and polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) fiber-reinforced concrete (PVA-FRC) panels with a contact detonation test both experimentally and numerically.

With 2% fiber volumetric content, SFRC and PVA-FRC specimens were prepared and comparatively tested in comparison with plain concrete.

A total of 23 cube compression tests are reported herein, alongside 10 model reinforcement tension tests, 21 four-point bending tests on unreinforced model concrete beams (prisms) of.

It was shown that the effects of ρ and a/d on the shear strength of beams are not significantly influenced by the concrete strength.

Within the scope of this study, there was no clear difference in size effect with increasing compressive strength of concrete. For #9 and larger, the number is a nominal size (while the actual size is larger). b 1 f cc ' e f f c g r r balanced u.

This paper demonstrates the size effect on the shear strength of reinforced concrete (RC) beams with stirrups and does so in two separate and independent ways: (1) by fracture mechanics, based on.Reinforced concrete beams are structural members that support the transverse load which usually rest on supports at its end.
