REINFORCEMENT DETAILING AT CORNERS AND FRAME JOINTS

BEWEHRUNGSFUEHRUNG IN RAHMENECKEN UND RAHMENKNOTEN

THE CORRECT DETAILING OF REINFORCEMENT IN FRAME JOINTS OR CORNERS IS IMPORTANT IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE ADEQUATE STRENGTH AND NARROW CRACK WIDTHS UNDER SERVICE LOADS AND TO AVOID SUDDEN FAILURES. THE EFFICIENCY OF A PARTICULAR ARRANGEMENT OF REINFORCEMENT IS PROVED BY COMPARING THE CALCULATED ULTIMATE LOAD WITH THE FAILURE LOAD OBTAINED FROM TESTS. SPECIAL ATTENTION MUST BE DEVOTED TO CORNERS SUBJECT TO POSITIVE MOMENTS (I.E. WITH TENSION ON THE INNER FACE) BECAUSE HIGH TENSILE STRESSES OCCUR WHICH CAN LEAD TO WIDE CRACKS. SUITABLE ARRANGEMENTS OF REINFORCEMENT ARE PROPOSED FOR THIS CASE AND FOR FRAME JUNCTIONS. THE REINFORCEMENT DETAILS ARE THE RESULTS OF RESEARCHES BY MANY WORKERS WHICH ARE LISTED IN THE REFERENCES.
