Semiempirical Analysis of Steel Reinforced Concrete Beams

This paper aimed to develop semi-empirical load-deflection analysis of steel fiber reinforced concrete beams. Eighteen beams were cast with various fiber volume fraction and length. A particular percentage of conventional steel reinforcements were provided. Cylinder specimens were also tested to get the variation of the modulus of elasticity with the level of stress. The beams were tested under two point symmetrical loading. Strain profile at various sections under different loading levels was obtained from recorded strain data at various levels and the moment-curvature relationships were developed. From moment-curvature relationships, load- modulus of rigidity relationships is developed. Finally, the central deflection has been estimated and compared with experimental values and a good agreement has been observed.
