FATIGUE BEHAVIOR OF WELDED REINFORCEMENT IN REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS
Fatigue tests were conducted on reinforcing bars subjected to axial loadings and reinforcing bars embedded in concrete beams. Major emphasis was placed on determining the effect of both welding and type of bar material on the fatigue behavior of the beam reinforcement. To this end a variety of butt and lap-welded joint types were studied. In addition, the relative fatigue behavior of intermediate grade and high strength reinforcing bars was investigated.
