Title: Post-Cracking Torsional Rigidity of
Reinforced Concrete Sections
Author(s): Thomas T. C. Hsu
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 352-360
Keywords: beams (supports) ; cracking (fracturing) ; reinforced concrete; shear modulus; torsion; stiffness; structural analysis; structuraI design.
Abstract:In statically indeterminate structures torsional moments can be determined only if the torsional stiffness of reinforced concrete members are known. This paper presents a theory for post-cracking torsional rigidity, which is developed using a new concept of post-cracking shear modulus. This new concept renders the theory generally applicable to arbitrary cross sections as well as simplifies the derivation of post-cracking torsional rigidity.
