Abstract:

This investigation determined the influence of end restraint on the strength and behavior of reinforced concrete deep members subjected to slowly applied loads as a basis for the development of minimum design considerations. The end restraint was applied in such a manner as to simulate that which would be developed in continuous beams or frames. Static tests were made on fifteen beams of which five were simply supported and ten were restrained. The investigation is concentrated on the crushing stage as the last stage for which meaningful concrete strains were available. It is shown that deep beams do have a capacity beyond crushing in terms of deflections, and, sometimes, of moments. This reserve capacity is not now predictable in the same manner as the procedure developed herein to predict the capacity at crushing. Author
