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.
