Title: Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Lapped Splices for Inelastic Cyclic Loading
Author(s): K. Lukose, P. Gergely, and R. N. White
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 355-365
Keywords: beams (supports); bond (concrete to reinforcement); columns (supports);cyclic loads; ductility; earthquake resistant structures; lap connections;reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; splicing; stirrups.
Abstract:The behavior of lapped splices in reinforced concrete is described based on over 60 large beam and column-type specimens subjected to high-level repeated or reversed cyclic flexural loads. Splices were located both in the corners and interior of the specimens. Main vaiables were transverse stell requirement, load history, magnitude of shear, and splice length. A minimum of fifteen eversing load cycles beyond yiels was considered indicative of satisfactory performance. Acompanion paper contains suggested design specifications.
