Title: Analysis of Dowel Bars Acting Against Concrete Core
Author(s): Parviz Soroushian, Kienuwa Obaseki, Maxim0 C. Rojas, and Jongsung Sim
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 642-649
Keywords: beams (supports); columns (supports); cracking (fracturing); defor-mation;dowels; failure; load-deflection curve; models; reinforced concrete;reinforcing steels; strength; tests.
Abstract:Specimens that simulated the dowel action of beam longitudinal bars against a concrete core at the cracked beam-column interface were tested. The test results, with the beam on an elastic foundation theory, were used to derive expressions for dowel strength and the dowel load-deflection relationship. The main factors influencing dowel behavior were also distinguished.
