Title: Corner Joint Details in Structural Lightweight Concrete
Author(s): Brian Mayfield, Fung-Kew Kong, Alan Bennison, and Julian C. D. Twiston Davies
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 366-372
Keywords: connections: corners; crack width and spacing; cracking (fracturing ; detailing:
flexural strength; fly ash: lightweight aggregate concretes: reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels;research; stiffness; stirrups; strength.
Abstract:Reports results of tests on 48 reinforced lightweight concrete corners. The effects of 12 types of reinforcement details on ultimate strength stiffness, and cracking were studied. It was found that some corner details commonly used in practice were not as efficient as other less conventional, but simpler, details.
