PROBABILITY STUDY OF REINFORCED CONCRETE IN BENDING

A PROBABILISTIC STUDY IS MADE OF THE ULTIMATE BENDING STRENGTH AND DUCTILITY RATIO FOR RECTANGULAR CONCRETE SECTIONS REINFORCED IN TENSION ONLY. IT IS DIVIDED INTO THREE MAIN PARTS. THE FIRST PART DEVELOPS PREDICTION EQUATIONS FOR ULTIMATE MOMENT AND DUCTILITY RATIO. THE SECOND PART IS CONCERNED WITH THE VALUES EXPECTED IN PRACTICE (I.E. THE PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS) OF THE PARAMETERS ENTERING INTO A PREDICTION OF ULTIMATE MOMENT AND DUCTILITY RATIO. THE THIRD PART GIVES PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS OF THE ULTIMATE MOMENT AND DUCTILITY RATIO WHICH ARE OBTAINED BY MEANS OF THE PREDICTION EQUATIONS FROM THE PROBABILITY DISTRIBUTIONS OF THE PARAMETERS. /RRL/
