CONCRETE BEAMS AND COLUMNS WITH BUNDLED REINFORCEMENT

TESTS OF PAIRS OF LARGE BEAMS WITH CONVENTIONALLY SPACED AND WITH BUNDLED LONGITUDINAL REINFORCEMENT WERE REPORTED. THE BUNDLES OF REINFORCEMENT USED COMPRISED GROUPS OF FOUR NO. 6, FOUR NO. 8 OR THREE NO. 9 TOUCHING BARS. PAIRS OF BEAMS WERE COMPARED WITH RESPECT TO WIDTH OF FLEXURAL CRACKS, STEEL STRESS DISTRIBUTION, DEFLECTION, AND ULTIMATE STRENGTH. NO SIGNIFICANT DIFFERENCE IN BEHAVIOR OR ULTIMATE STRENGTH WAS FOUND FOR BUNDLED AS COMPARED TO SPACED REINFORCEMENT.
