SHEARING STRENGTH AND FLEXURAL CRACKING AND CAPACITY OF TWO-WAY SLABS SUBJECTED TO A CONCENTRATED LOAD

THIS PAPER DESCRIBES AN EXPERIMENTAL AND THEORETICAL STUDY ON THE ULTIMATE STRENGTH OF REINFORCED CONCRETE SLABS SUPPORTED ON BEAMS. FOURTEEN SLABS, SUBJECTED TO A CENTRALLY LOCATED, CONCENTRATED LOAD, WERE 1.2 TO 1.6 M SQUARE. THE FACT THAT SLABS SUPPORTED MORE RIGIDLY ARE INCLINED TO FAIL BY SHEAR AND TO EXCEED THE CALCULATED ULTIMATE SHEAR STRENGTH WAS CONSIDERED. THIS DISCREPANCY COMES FROM ARCH ACTION. MEMBRANE FORCE IS CALCULATED FROM THE UNBALANCED STRESS AT THE CROSS SECTION. BASED ON THIS METHOD OF CALCULATION, THE ULTIMATE FLEXURAL STRENGTH AND THE ULTIMATE SHEAR STRENGTH ARE EVALUATED. MOREOVER, DIAGONAL TENSION IS EXAMINED UNDER SIMPLE STRESS STATES. /ACI/
