Title: The Fundamental Behavior of Reinforced Concrete Beams in Bending and Shear
Author(s): H.P.J. Taylor
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 43-78
Keywords: aggregate interlock; beams (supports); bending; compressive strength; cracking (fracturing); dowels; elastic analysis; modulus of elasticity; reinforced concrete; reinforcing steels; shear properties; shear strength; stress transfer
