Title: Influence of Repeated Loading On the Stirrup Stress of Reinforced Concrete Beams
Author(s): J. Ruhnau
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 169-182
Keywords: beams (supports); crack width and spacing; cyclic loads; fatigue (materials); loading rate; reinforced concrete; stirrups; stress transfer; structural analysis; web reinforcement
Abstract:Usually the stirrup stresses of test beams are measured during initial loading. The validity of this stress-load relation is discussed in regard to design criteria of web reinforcement, inclined crack width control, and fatigue strength of web reinforcement.
