MECHANICS OF CONCRETE PARTICIPATION IN CYCLIC SHEAR RESISTANCE OF RC. DISCUSSION AND CLOSURE

A discussion of a paper with the aforementioned title by B. Martin-Perez and S.J. Pantazopoulou, published in this journal (Volume 124, Number 6, June 1998), is presented. The discusser points out that although the authors considered the presence of both longitudinal and transverse steel in the membrane element, the behavior may be different if the longitudinal steel is absent in the element, which is more realistic for analyzing the web regions. He also suggests that the authors' simplified expression to calculate the shear strength of concrete at various ductility demands overemphasizes the influence of the transverse reinforcement amount. Discussion is followed by closure from the authors.
