Abstract:
Laboratory investigations of static and dynamic elastic behavior of reinforced concrete beams are described. Results indicate that strains of concrete and steel may be predicted with reasonable accuracy for both static and dynamic conditions of loading provided that (a) proper allowance is made for the effects of creep and crackingof the concrete, and (b) that an exact dynamic theory be used with allowance for damping for the dynamic condition of loading.
