Generalized Stress Field Approach for Analysis of Beams in Shear

This study seeks to further develop stress field and strut-and-tie approaches for the design of structural concrete members. The generalized stress field approach for the analysis of structural concrete beams in shear represents an equilibrium model. Compatibility can be incorporated by specifically limiting the values of the inclination of the stress bands and considering the strain state in determining the effective concrete compressive strength. A total of 113 experimental results from beam and panel tests were compared with calculated data to confirm the accuracy of this approach. This paper also presents a consistent structured procedure. Limit analysis methods can be used for the conception or design of a new structure. The generalized stress field approach should be applied for a more detailed analysis, and calculations based on the cracked membrane model may be conducted for an assessment of a structure.
