DIAGONAL CRACKING AND ULTIMATE LOADS OF LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE DEEP BEAMS

TESTS WERE CARRIED OUT ON 45 SINTERED FLY ASH, LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE DEEP BEAMS. DIFFERENT TYPES AND AMOUNTS OF WEB REINFORCEMENT WERE USED. AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE TO ISOLATE THE EFFECTS OF THE SPAN-DEPTH RATIO L/D AND OF THE CLEAR-SHEAR-SPAN TO DEPTH RATIO X/D ON CRACK CONTROL, ON DIAGONAL CRACKING LOADS, AND ON ULTIMATE SHEAR LOADS. MEASURED CRACKING AND ULTIMATE LOADS WERE COMPARED WITH THOSE COMPUTED FROM VARIOUS FORMULAS, INCLUDING THOSE OF ACI 318-71 AND THE DRAFT BRITISH UNIFIED CODE. /AUTHOR/
