SHEAR IN REINFORCED AERATED CONCRETE DRIVERS

The paper reports on two series of shear tests of reinforced aerated concrete members, one of slabs without, and the other of beams with, shear reinforcement. The test results and experimental observations are used to derive expressions for shear forces causing shear cracking and ultimate shear resistance of members with and without shear steel. The predictions of these expressions are compared with the present and other published data and shown to be reasonably accurate.(a) (TRRL) opened at the same time. A driver's seat of the built-in type gave a significant improvement because the fall of temperature and the air speed decreased. The measures that should be considered are to (a) increase the built-in area of the driver's seat (b) reconstruct the heating system so that an invariable heat is obtained (C) increase the amount of inflated hot air in the lower part of the driving compartment (D) warm up the side-window.
