CONCRETE SLABS REINFORCED WITH HIGH YIELD POINT STEEL BARS

SLABS WERE TESTED TO STUDY THE EFFECT OF VARIATION IN YIELD POINT, COMBINATION OF HIGH STRENGTH CONCRETE WITH STEELS OF HIGH AND LOW YIELD POINT, EFFECT OF CONCRETES OF DIFFERENT STRENGTHS IN COMBINATION WITH STEEL OF CONSTANT YIELD POINT AND EFFECT OF VARYING SPAN LENGTH WHEN USING STEEL AND CONCRETE OF CONSTANT STRENGTH. NO DIFFERENCE IN BEHAVIOR BETWEEN RAIL STEEL AND BILLET STEEL WAS FOUND. AMONG THE SIGNIFICANT PHENOMENA NOTED WERE: WITH LOW STEEL RATIOS THE ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF THE STEEL WAS DEVELOPED AT LOADS NOT GREATLY DIFFERING FROM RELATIVE YIELD POINTS OR ULTIMATE STRENGTHS; WITH INTERMEDIATE STEEL RATIOS SECONDARY NEGATIVE COMPRESSION FAILURE TOOK PLACE; HIGH STEEL RATIOS PREVENTED SECONDARY COMPRESSION FAILURE. APPARENTLY THE EFFECTIVE STEEL RATIO HAS MORE TO DO WITH THE STRENGTH OF A SLAB THAN THE CRUSHING STRENGTH OF THE CONCRETE. /AUTHOR/
