Abstract:
Title No. 55-60 Method for determining the influence of grade of reinforcing steel on blast resistance of beams is based on preselected criteria of failure. The peak dynamic load capacity is calculated for beams of a given configuration but having different percentages and grades of reinforcing steel. These calculations are made for blast-type loads of different duration. Plots of the results indicate that suitability of various steel grades will depend primarily on maximum permissible deflection, characteristics of the loading, and amount of tension steel used.
