M. Yamada, H. Kawamura, and K. Katagihara
The resistance, deformation and fracture mechanics of reinforced concrete shear walls with openings are investigated experimentally as well as analytically, not only in elastic but also in cracked, ultimate and even post-ultimate states.
T. Paulay and J.R. Binney
A study of coventially reinforced coupling beams, containing horizontal flexural reinforcement and vertical stirrups for shear resistance, revealed that failure after high intensity reveresed cyclic loading is in the form of sliding shear.
M.E. Criswell and N.W. Hawkins
A summary is made of methods of analysis and theories for predicting the shear strength of slabs when there is no shear reinforcement or moment transfer in the region of the concentrated load.
Usually the stirrup stresses of test beams are measured during initial loading. The validity of this stress-load relation is discussed in regard to design criteria of web reinforcement, inclined crack width control, and fatigue strength of web reinforcement.
The principal results from two testing programs, one including eight statically-loaded and eleven dynamically-loaded full scale isolated slab-column connections and the other including tests of two one-quarter scale nice panel slab models, are presented along with observations concerning the failure modes and strengths of connection models and slab systems as limited by their response in shear. Difficulties in classifying the failure of slab column connections into a shear or flexural failure mode and in providing adequate ductility in these regions are discussed.
