INFLUENCE OF SHEAR AND BOND ON ROTATIONAL CAPACITY OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS

TEN TWO-SPAN REINFORCED CONCRETE BEAMS WERE TESTED TO STUDY THE INFLUENCE OF SHEAR AND BOND ON THE ROTATIONAL CAPACITY OF REINFORCED CONCRETE PLASTIC HINGES. THE SHEAR STRESS DETERMINES WHETHER A "FLEXURAL CRACK HINGE" OR A "SHEAR CRACK HINGE" OCCURS. IN FLEXURAL CRACK HINGES THE ROTATIONAL CAPACITY CAN BE CONSIDERED SMALLER THAN THE VALUES CALCULATED BY USUAL METHODS. THEREFORE A NEW METHOD OF CALCULATION GIVING SAFE VALUES HAS BEEN DEVELOPED. ON THE OTHER HAND IN SHEAR CRACK HINGES PLASTIC DEFORMATIONS OCCUR WITHIN A WIDE ZONE ALLOWING A LARGER ROTATIONAL CAPACITY. /AUTHOR/
