EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF THE COMBINED BEHAVIOR OF REINFORCED CONCRETE PLATES AND A SANDY FOUNDATION BED

EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES OF REINFORCED CONCRETE PLATES RESTING ON SAND WERE BASED UPON CONSIDERATIONS OF THREE STATES OF BEHAVIOR (ELASTIC, PLASTIC, AND FAILURE) FOR THE FOOTING AND FOR THE FOUNDATION SAND. TESTS WERE DESIGNED TO OBTAIN VARIOUS COMBINATIONS OF STATES OF STRESS FOR THE FOUNDATION STRUCTURE AND FOR THE SAND. DATA RECORDED CONSISTED OF MEASURED DEFLECTIONS OF THE PLATES BY DIAL INDICATORS, STRESSES IN BOTH CONCRETE AND REINFORCING STEEL BY ELECTRIC STRAIN GAGES, AND VISUAL OBSERVANCE OF CRACK PATTERNS WITH MAGNIFYING GLASSES. RESULTS OF THE EXPERIMENTS SHOWED COMPLEX INTERACTION BETWEEN THE PLATES AND FOUNDATION MATERIAL. EXTENSIVE REDISTRIBUTION OF STRESSES OCCURRED AS PLASTIC DEFORMATIONS DEVELOPED. RESULTS ALSO SHOWED THAT SUCH SYSTEMS HAVE CONSIDERABLE RESERVES OF STRENGTH. /AMR/
