THE FATIGUE STRENGTH OF STEEL REINFORCEMENT IN CONCRETE

THE DERIVATION OF FATIGUE STRENGTHS FOR BRITISH- MADE STEEL REINFORCEMENT FROM ALL AVAILABLE TEST RESULTS IS DESCRIBED. FATIGUE STRENGTHS ARE GIVEN FOR STRAIGHT UNWELDED REINFORCEMENT AND LOWER STRENGTHS ARE PROPOSED FOR REINFORCEMENT WHICH IS BENT OR WELDED. IT IS SUGGESTED THAT THESE FATIGUE STRENGTHS CAN BE USED WITH SAFETY TO CHECK THE RESISTANCE OF REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES TO FATIGUE FAILURE. THE STRENGTHS ARE GIVEN IN A FORM SUCH THAT THE REINFORCEMENT OF A STRUCTURE FOR WHICH THERE IS A SPECTRUM OF LOADING CAN READILY BE CHECKED FOR FATIGUE USING A SIMILAR PROCEDURE TO THAT RECOMMENDED IN BS 153 FOR CONSTRUCTIONAL DETAILS. /TRRL/A/
